Can't vouch for these, but I've had good luck with allrecipes.com in general (like biscotti...)

I ordered a box of Whoopie Pies for my dad for Father's Day from Labadie's and they were excellent.

The service was wonderful too. I chatted for about 20 minutes with the woman who answered the phone (the owner?) and she was extremely nice an accommodating.

Of course Marthah Stewart prefers Cranberry Island Kichen whoppie pies. The company is named after 2 small islands off of Mount Desert where one of the owners spent childhood summers but are in actuality produced in Cumberland, Me.

As for myself, I will gladly eat a tasty fresh generic pie sold at any old gas station in the great State O' Maine!!! Yummy!!

P.S. at the price of these goodies + shipping, maybe we should be posting recipes for whoopies instead!?
The recipe is the best answer. Whoopie Pies are very easy to make and would be a hell of alot cheaper. By looking at those sites I think I might have a part time income when I get back there.
But, having them at The fair with coffee can make just about anything taste good. I miss fairs we don't have anything like them in Florida.

When my boys were little, I used to make them whoopie pies; they are easy to make and delicious. The mail order ones are really expensive!

The recipe listed as VI is the closest to our old Maine recipe that started with my grand mother many years ago. EXCEPT where it says marshmellow cream you really should use "Marshmellow FLUFF"

They are VERY easy to make

Whoopie Pie Recipe

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk

Filling
1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups Marshmallow Fluff (or you can use marshmallow crème)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease baking sheets. (I use parchment paper instead)

In a large bowl, cream together shortening, sugar, and egg. In another bowl, combine cocoa, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir the vanilla extract into the milk. Add the dry ingredients to the shortening mixture, alternating with the milk mixture; beating until smooth.
Drop batter by the 1/4 cup (to make 18 cakes) onto prepared baking sheets. With the back of a spoon spread batter into 4-inch circles, leaving approximately 2 inches between each cake. Bake 15 minutes or until they are firm to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a wire rack.

Make the Filling. In a medium bow, beat together shortening, sugar, and Marshmallow fluff; stir in vanilla extract until well blended.

When the cakes are completely cool, spread the flat side (bottom) of one chocolate cake with a generous amount of filling. Top with another cake, pressing down gently to distribute the filling evenly. Repeat with all cookies to make 9 pies. Wrap whoopie pies individually in plastic wrap, or place them in a single layer on a platter (do not stack them, they will stick!!).

To freeze, wrap each whoopie pie in plastic wrap. Loosely pack them in a plastic freezer container and cover. To serve, defrost the wrapped whoopie pies in the refrigerator. Makes 9 large whoopie pies.

No Fluff out here.

I should try to make some, but I'm not much of a baker. My husband will attest to that. Maybe I'll give that recipe a trial run this weekend while the Patriots have the bye week. I like that they can be made ahead and frozen. My hands will be full with a toddler and other party preparations Super Bowl weekend. Thanks Bewitched!
