I heard this story on my way home from picking the boys up from school/daycare the other night.

And of course I had to make them.

Admittedly mine are not the traditional hamburger-sized whoopie pies.

I've made 'em in the past, but I had to make them again. And I wanted to make some for the office because I prefer to call them Moon Pies and the attorneys I sit next to were joking they should start a "Moon Law" practice group within the firm.

But I ran out of cocoa.

Bummer for them.


Remember! There's still time to enter the sewing maching naming contest to win either a year's subscription to Knitcircus or the Spring 2011 collection of patterns! Contest is open till 5:00 p.m. Alaska Standard Time (do the math! Ha ha!)

oh yum.

I am stumped on the sewing machine. She just looks like a Susie to me.

Moon pies! Those look good!

I've put my thoughts in on naming your new machine.

Love, Mom

Yummy! I hate those boxed Moon Pies that stores sell, but those homemade whoopie pies look tasty!

And those politicians in Maine who are arguing about whether to make whoopie pies the state dessert - come on, they don't have anything better to worry about?!

Whoopie Pies aren't remotely like a Moon Pie. Other than they're both round. But then I live in the land of the Whoopie Pie, so there you go.

Mmm... whoopie pies! I can attest that whatever its origins, there are more whoopie pies and more different kinds of whoopie pies in Maine than any other place I've been. Also, I agree with Poops, there's a big difference between whoopie pies and moon pies.

I love whoopie pies. I made them last on Labor Day and they didn't last. I always forget how good they are.

And the machine? I'm not good at naming things. I'd call her Samantha.
