Football and Whoopie Pies

A Labor Day tradition in my family. We're visiting my parents in Pennsylvania, and I'm about ten seconds away from whipping up a batch of Lancaster County's most notable treat. If you haven't ever had one (which is just tragic, really) you must. Epicurious has a recipe that's very similar to my grandmas. Have a happy labor day weekend. And if you happen to be tailgating at Penn State this weekend, hunt me down. I'll be the one with a whoopie pie in one hand and a beer in the other.

hmmm, whoopie pies and beer. not sure about that combo :)

while i've never had the pleasure of tasting our grandmother's whoopie pies i have had those made from that epicurious recipe and they are sinful.

Yeah! I never hear of other bloggers from Lancaster, PA. I thought I was the only one! :P Penn State ROCKS. My dad played football for them. He was the starting long snapper and center.

Hope you have a great time! And I miss my whoopie pies :( I'm going to school in Nashville and can't wait to get home.

Have fun! I live 30 minutes from Beaver Stadium and love State College!!! Hope the weather is good for football. For some reason, we never called them whoopie pies, we always called them gobs! What a good idea, might have to whip up a batch of them with my mom this weekend!

Lahmode and Nicole –

Hi! I grew up in Lancaster, PA, but I now live in Glen Ridge, NJ.

I am in Lancaster very often visiting my parents. ;)

sounds like a great weekend! I'll have to attempt the recipe—have never had the pleasure of enjoying a whoopie pie (are they normally a sidedish to beer—or just for the football game?!)
