Deb's Whoopie Pies

I'm not sure if you know about Whoopie Pies. I grew up with them in New England, and they seemed to have skipped over to Pennsylvania without much notoriety between the states or beyond. Please let me know where you're from and if you've ever had these creamy, chocolatey treats. Our neighbor Debbie just down the road from our place in Friendship, Maine shared her recipe for Whoopie Pies to be featured on Evenings With Peter. She doubles the whole shebang because people always want more! Thanks so much Debbie!

1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. Hershey cocoa

1/4 c. milk
