Lemon Blueberry Whoopie Pies

These whoopie pies are soft, cakey cookies studded with tart, juicy blueberries and filled with tangy cream cheese frosting.

Go Bananas Whoopie Pies

I love anything with peanut butter, so when I saw this recipe for soft banana cookies with a yummy peanut butter filling, I had to make them. Use a cookie scoop to keep them nicely rounded and all the same size. —Jessie Sarrazin, Livingston, Montana

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

This recipe is proof that dreams really do come true. Silky smooth red velvet anything is always a winner in our book, but the cream cheese frosting oozing out of these cute creations? Now that’s the real icing on the cake, pun intended.

Lemony Gingerbread Whoopie Pies Exps Hplz17 50509 C06 02 5b 7

Lemony Gingerbread Whoopie Pies

Just like all the foods that are salty and sweet, lemon and gingerbread is one of those combinations you don’t think would work… but totally does. And if the citrusy-yet-spicy flavor doesn’t win you over, the crunchy coating (you roll these in sugar before baking) definitely will.

Devil’s Food Whoopie Pies

These mini cookie cakes were one of my favorite treats while I was growing up in Pennsylvania. We called them gobs because they are gobs of fun to eat! The recipe can make fewer or more, depending on how large or small you make the cookies. Place the finished chocolate whoopie pies in large cupcake liners for a professional look. —Pamela Esposito, Galloway, New Jersey

Maple Whoopie Pies

Let’s be honest: The best part about eating pancakes is smothering them in sticky sweet syrup. But who says that maple goodness is just for breakfast? Enjoy the sugary substance all day, every day (without the mess!) with these whoopie pies.

Chocolate and pumpkin—yum! At a party, my friends cut their whoopie pies in half thinking that’s all they’d eat. Once they had a taste, they devoured the rest. —Diane Selich, Vassar, Michigan
