S’mores Whoopie Pies

S'mores Whoopie Pies

Have you noticed that whoopie pies have become all the rage lately? First cupcakes became tres chic and began an empire-like rule over entire bakeries and cookbooks. Well, move over cupcakes, whoopie pies are trying to steal your thunder. From the classic chocolate and marshmallow fluff to gourmet and savory varieties, the sky is the limit when it comes to flavor combinations. Throw in that they are portable and easy to eat without a plate or silverware (just like cupcakes) and you can begin to see why they have become so popular.

Now, it’s pretty well documented here that I am a born and bred Pittsburgh girl, so growing up these were known as gobs. And they only came in one flavor – chocolate with a white icing center. They sent my little heart racing. My mom had a couple of friends that could make really sensational gobs and I always looked forward to the parties where they would show up. Now that there are so many possibilities at my fingertips?? Look out!

S'mores Whoopie Pies

These s’mores whoopie pies are as close to a s’more as you can get without the actual graham cracker and ooey-gooey marshmallow. The cake part is made with graham flour (Bob’s Red Mill brand, found in the organics section of the local supermarket) and the flavor is spot-on. I made them for the 4th of July weekend and they would certainly be appropriate for any summertime picnic or get together.

The recipe comes from the recently-released cookbook Whoopie Pies, which was co-authored by Sarah Billingsley and Amy Treadwell. Sarah is a native of Pittsburgh and used to write for the local newspaper, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I worked with the food editor there to write a piece about the popularity of whoopie pies, their history, and a bit about Sarah and the book:

“Ex-Pittsburgher’s book has gobs of recipes” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). The article includes recipes for the Tiramisu Whoopie Pie and the Jalapeño Cornbread Whoopie Pie.

Sarah Billingsley was beyond generous and offered to send me a signed copy of Whoopie Pies, to be given away to one of my readers. Read on to find out how you can win the book…

One year ago: Snickerdoodles

S'mores Whoopie Pies

Yield: About 2 dozen assembled whoopie pies

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Graham Cracker Whoopie:
1½ cups graham flour
¾ cup all-purpose flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
½ cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Classic Marshmallow Filling:
1½ cups Marshmallow Fluff (or other prepared marshmallow cream, which will do in a pinch)
1¼ cups vegetable shortening
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache Filling:
8 ounces milk chocolate chips (or solid chocolate, finely chopped)
½ cup heavy cream

Directions:

1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together both flours, baking powder, and salt.

3. In the work bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, shortening and brown sugar until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and the buttermilk and beat until combined.

4. In a measuring cup, combine the milk, baking soda, and vinegar. Add the milk mixture to the batter along with the flour mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Add the vanilla and beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes, until completely combined.

5. Using a spoon, drop about 1 tablespoon of batter onto one of the prepared baking sheets and repeat, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time for about 10 minutes each, or until the cakes begin to brown. Remove from the oven and let the cakes cool on the sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.

6. Make the Marshmallow Filling: In the work bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the Marshmallow Fluff and the vegetable shortening, starting on low and increasing to medium speed until the mixture is smooth and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Reduce mixer speed to low, add the confectioners' sugar and the vanilla, and beat until incorporated. Increase mixer speed to medium and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes more.

7. Make the Chocolate Ganache Filling: Put the chocolate in a large, heatproof bowl. Heat the cream in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat just until it bubbles. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate in the bowl and let it sit for about 10 minutes, until the chocolate is melted. Stir with a wooden spoon or spatula until smooth. Allow the mixture to rest at room temperature until firm enough to spread, about 2 hours. You may also refrigerate the mixture for about 30 minutes, until it is firm enough to spread, stirring every 10 minutes.

8. Assemble the whoopie pies: Pipe or spread (whatever your preferred method) a layer of chocolate ganache filling onto the flat side of one of the cakes. Using the same method, top the chocolate filling with the marshmallow filling. Top it with another cake, flat-side down. Repeat with the rest of the cakes and filling.

* Note: I know many people are opposed to vegetable shortening, but it really is a necessary ingredient. It gives the cakes their characteristic lift and lightness, and the rounded shape. It is also a crucial component of the classic marshmallow filling. I can attest to both of these after reviewing my mom's old recipes for gobs!

    Honestly, I’ve never heard of these things until this year… and when I DID hear of them I was told they were “whoopie pies.” However that name always makes me think of whoopie cushions (which is not the sort of thing you want to associate with food), so I’d be fine if we just called them gobs!

    PS) They’re just as addicting in mini-form. :)

    My mom always called them sandwich cookies, actually. But she holds strong to the belief that a pie has a crust and can be sliced. My fave sandwich cookie is chocolate chip with chocolate filling!

    They are and always will be Gobs! I make a traditional chocolate with the white cream middle. For Steelers games, I roll the assembled gobs in black and gold sprinkles so that they stick to the cream filling.

    I have always known these as whoopie pies…until I married my husband. :)
    Chances are if you are from Pennsylvania or other mid-western states you know them as “Gob’s”. My husband was born and raised in Amish Country. While he is not Amish, all of his neighbors are and his brother married a Mennonite woman who, like many Amish, call these “Gobs”. There origin can be traced as far back as medieval Germany…..eating these delicious treats on horseback no doubt. ;)

    I grew up in Western PA & live in Pittsburgh where gobs are gobs (it’s cake, not pie.) I have heard them called “whoopie cookies” in Erie, PA. I like the traditional school bake sale recipe with the chocolate cake and Crisco/Butter filling (I know it’s terrible but good.)

    The best I ever ate, however, were in Phoenix, AZ this past March as dessert at “District American Kitchen.” They were red velvet sliders with a light cherry flavoring. NOM NOM NOM

    You are right, they have become famous now…in fact until a few months ago I didn’t even know what they were! (I’m not American! We don’t have them in Italy). So whoopie pie or gob? No idea….but the sound of the word gob seems so much more fun that I choose gob. Taste? No idea either….but I love everything with vanilla cream so I’ll go with that!

    I grew up in Western Pennsylvania calling them gobs, usually referring to the traditional chocolate cake with white filling version. I didn’t even know until recently that they were called ‘whoopie pies’ in other regions. I do like the traditional variety but have taken a liking to the pumpkin cake version. It’s a nice change around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. I wouldn’t mind trying to make them myself with a fillling similar to pumpkin rolls. A nice holiday treat in an individual serving.

    I have only heard them called Whoopie Pies. My absolute favorite has to be red velvet with a cream cheese filling, although pumpkin whoopie pies with a cinnamon cream cheese filling is amazing too!

    I don’t know them as either gobs or whoopie pies. Isn’t that pathetic. I didn’t even know they had a name. I have never had them home made either and never imagined there could be so many varieties. My experience has either been vanilla, banana or chocolate flavored store bought individually plastic wrapped somewhat stale pies. I think I would call them gobs just because whoopie pies make me think of whoopie cushions. Anyway, I’m in serious need of some gob education! :)

    I have never had a whoopie pie or a gob before–but they look amazing! I’ll have to give them a try!

    I have only heard of them as whoopie pies. Yet, I have never had one. But, I would love to win this cookbook and bake up a storm for the boys and my husband, and extended family!

    I have only heard of whoopie pies. I have had a couple and chocolate was my favorite. I think a keylime or lemon would be divine.

    I call them whoopie pies. I don’t believe I’ve ever even heard of a gob. My favorite whoopie pie that I’ve had is an oatmeal whoopie pie with vanilla buttercream filling. But I have a feeling these S’more ones may just be my new favorite after I make them!

    Is it weird that I haven’t had a whoopie pie (it’s totally not a gob) before? These look really yummy, and I’m almost tempted to stay up all night makin’ and eatin’ them.

    I’ve heard of Whoopie Pies before, but not Gobs, so I’d say it’s a Whoopie Pie. Besides, I’d rather eat something called a Whoopie Pie. Gob isn’t a very appetizing name! However, I’ve never tired the treat under either name! I’ll have to change that!

    They’re whoopie pies to me! My favorites are the classic chocolate with white filling. My friend makes heaps of them for Christmas; makes me always look forward to the holidays!

    I’d say a whoopie pie and I didn’t even know that there was more than one flavor of them. This recipes looks amazingly delicious…thanks for sharing and thanks for the contest!

    Definitely whoopie pies as I’ve known them. I’ve only ever had the classic chocolate cookie w/ filling kind. I’d love to see all the different kinds I could make for my friends with that book!

    They look delicious!! I haven’t heard about gobs before, so they are whoppie pies to me! And… I’ve never had whoopie pies before :-) so couldn’t tell you my favorite flavour.

    I’m from Texas and have only known them as Whoopie Pies! I’ve of course had the chocolate with white icing, but have also tried lemon and red velvet. Red Velvet cake is an all time favorite of mine, so Red Velvet Whoopie Pies where over the top! Love them!
