Whoopie Pies & Cranberry Creme


One taste of these send my thoughts soaring ! You remember lunch boxes, and sunny afternoons. On the second taste, you are in a cafe in Germany-the black forest.
One Autumn, I took the four kids to bike ride the path along the cranberry bog at the Cape. The youngest ( 5 at the time ) kept having to stop, as the chain on her bike kept falling off. We came upon a cute little mom & pop store, where the store owner adjusted the bike while we filled our tummies with these snazzy whoopie pies. How delicious a memory can be.

½ cup butter
2 cups sugar
½ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk

¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup boiling water

1 ¾ cup flour

The full recipe is under desserts.
