Whoopie pies seem to be everywhere these days. They are featured not only in bakeries across the country, but make it into the news and even have dedicated bakeware. Fortunately, you don’t need special equipment to bake these tasty desserts and introduce them to the one place you might not have seen them yet: your own home kitchen. I have some great whoopie pie recipes up on Baking Bites, including Banana Whoopie Pies and Salted Caramel Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, but today I’m giving away a copy of the cookbook Whoopie Pies. It’s a great little book that I’ve reviewed before, full of recipes classic and more contemporary whoopie pies, and mouthwatering photos to inspire you to bake!
To enter the contest, leave a comment with your favorite whoopie pie flavor below. It doesn’t have to be a flavor you’ve tried, either, so feel free to name any combination of cookie and cream filling that you can think of! I might even end up making some of the tastiest combinations into recipes for Baking Bites! The contest ends Sunday at midnight and the winner will be randomly selected from the entries. Donâ€™t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck!
Update: Contest is now closed. Congrats to Lauren of Sweet and Twisted on winning this giveaway!

Better Than Sex whoopie pie — the cake recipe turned into a whoopie pie. Basically a german chocolate soft cookie base with fluffy white filling, a thin layer of caramel also sandwiched in and some chocolate toffee bits sprinkled on the sides.

I’ve never had a whoopie pie, but I really really really want to try a banana one. Or a carrot cake one would be nice. Or a coconut cream one. ooooh
sophiaMarch 17, 2011
I haven’t ever actually had a good whoopie pie (although I think i’ve only ever had one!), but peanut butter chocolate sounds really good. 🙂
LauraMarch 17, 2011
I made some chocolate whoopies that I filled with caramel pastry cream and covered in caramel ganache. Sort of a creamy “rolo” whoopie. 🙂
KatieMarch 17, 2011
Chocolate cake with banana buttercream or banana cake with peanut butter frosting

Chocolate with peanutbutter are amazing!
Lindsay TjarksMarch 17, 2011
To be honest, I have not yet made the now-trendy whoopie pies, so I don’t have a favorite flavor! I will let you know, however, if I win this book!!!
EllaMarch 17, 2011
My friends always request the pumpkin whoopie pies I fisrt made a couple years ago. Though I rarely make things twice, I caved for my friend’s b’day last month.

Nicole YMarch 17, 2011

Carrot cake whoopie pies with appropriate cream cheese whoopie pie filling. If I’m lazy I fulfill this craving frequently with trader joe’s “inside out carrot cake”
Melissa S.March 17, 2011
A good red velvet with cream cheese frosting…My mouth is watering…
AmyMarch 17, 2011
I’ve never had one other than chocolate cake and vanilla filling. I’d love a pumpkin one though.
DiannaMarch 17, 2011
I love, love, love pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese filling – I could eat dozens!
KimMarch 17, 2011
I would have to say Strawberry Shortcake Whoopie Pies…the cakes will be sweet and spongy like sponge cake with strawberry pieces…the cream center would be like the dollop of whipped on top! Summer can tickle your taste buds anytime you have one!!
MichelleMarch 17, 2011
Although a traditional whoopie pie is one of my favorite desserts, I like to make a chocolate cookie with mint-chocolate chips in it with a light and fluffy whipped cream filling! Looks like a fun cookbook!
merremMarch 17, 2011
Haven’t tried it yet as a whoopie pie, but i think a chocolate & raspberry combo would be oh so yummy.
rachelMarch 17, 2011
Chocolate whoopie pies with peanut butter filling…yum!

Becki SueMarch 17, 2011
It is hard to believe, but I’ve never had a whoopie pie!! I’ve bookmarked plenty of recipes, but just haven’t baked them up yet. Pumpkin will be the first flavor I try.
Amy DMarch 17, 2011
The salted caramel and pumpkin sound so good. Throw in some chocolate chips and that would be heaven.
