I lived in the south for at least a decade, but I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a Whoopie pie. They seem to be a staple in the South, and I apologize to all of my southern friends and family for not indulging me, sooner. So… to make up for my horrific oversight, I found a couple of red velvet Whoopie pie recipes, took notes on responses from readers, made a few adjustments, and Voila’. I finally sunk my teeth into a Whoopie Pie.
