My Whoopie Pie ProblemFollow

I'm trying to make small Whoopie Pies - about 1.5" in diameter.

Heres the problem; When I use my regular recipe and simply use smaller blobs of batter the whoopie pie piece spreads more when cooked. So I end up with a Whoopie Pie of nearly the same diameter but thinner.

I add a bit more flour to the batter and now I get the perfect sized whoopie pie - in both diameter and thickness. But it's dry. Smiley: frown

I've had small Whoopie Pies that were both small and moist - it's not an impossibility.

I'm thinking of using bacon grease instead of shortening.

Does anyone have any ideas?

On that note, forget the pies.

The muffin pans are a pretty good idea if I can find some small enough.

Wal-Mart sells them in "one bite" size, or is that too small?

Sour cream and raisin > all

Edit: Now that I've googled it... It looks like a glorified oreoesque food, not so much as a pie. Pie's should have crusts.

Still looks hella delicious though.

I googled it, and it looks like some kind of delicious combination of an oreo and a cake.

What is this black magic.

Sounds delicious. Also, I thank you for doing the legwork to find out what it was, because I was much too scared to.

Only the size of your face, if the pictures are anything to go by.

The only suggestion that I have on the subject is that you start calling them by the more appropriate name of "Gobs".

NO. Oreo Cakesters suck compared to a good whoppie pie.

Elinda, a coworker of mine has some device that is designed to make tiny whoppie pies. I won't see her until Monday night, but if you want, I will find out what it is for you.

That's fine, good sir. I just didn't want people thinking that whoppie pies tasted anything like that crap.

I changed my mind. I decided whoopie pies are too perishable to ship off as gifts. I'm gonna make granola bars.

An update: I have perfected the perfect granola bar (assuming you like honey). They'll be great shipping gifts.

I saw Whoopie Pie molds in Michaels, btw. For those folks who are symmetrical circle challenged.
