Whoopsie Pies

That's right, "Whoopsie", not "Whoopie." I'm not quite sure why Marjorie called it this, but perhaps it is the way they pronounce it Down East. My family has a history with this recipe and I'm sure many Mainers turn to it when making whoopsie pies.

My grandmother used to make whoopsie pies, and they would disappear so quickly that she gave up and to save time she made a cake, cut it in half and filled it with the filling. She is convinced to this day that making whoopsie pies this way not only saved her time, but the cake lasted twice as long.

I decided to make Whoopsie Pies this week to honor Valentines Day, and it was a good choice! We have 3 pies left.  Come in today and get 'em while they last!
