Whoopie Pies – Recipes for trendy pies
Whoopie pies, small sweet two-layers filled with cream, are conquering German cake buffets. All about pies and recipes to try.
They’re small and sweet, made of puff pastry with a creamy filling, and the latest baking trend to hit us from the US: pies. After muffins, cupcakes and cakes, cute little two-tiers are now conquering German cake buffets.
Whoopie pies are similar to macaroons, French meringues made with almond flour were the ultimate food hype a few years ago. But the pies are different: the cookies embedded in the cream are moist and soft, almost like a cake. Vovka pies are quick and easy to make: mix the ingredients and strain the dough into a tray using a piping bag. After baking the biscuit with a biscuit, press the cream on one biscuit and press the second one on it as a “cover” – it’s ready. At the end, if you want, decorate the dishes with toppings.
Baked candy halves can be stored in cookie jars or frozen. But don’t fill them in just yet. Depending on the cream, you can keep the brownies for several days, but the sweet sandwiches are simply the freshest.
And where does the strange name Wopie Pies come from? “Wow!” Some Americans scream when they are pleasantly surprised. By the way, pies have a long tradition in the US, especially on the east coast. In 2011, a congressman even wanted to make the pie the state’s official dessert. It failed due to opposition from Pennsylvanians, who also claim to have invented pies.
Two newly published cookbooks offer recipes for the pie trend:
