Gluten-Free Whoopie Pies

We thought we'd conclude our week of gluten-free adventures on a sweet note with these Whoopie Pies from Elizabeth Barbone's How to Cook Gluten-Free.

Barbone shares a particularly heartbreaking childhood story in the recipe's intro about not being able to enjoy a whoopie pie due to food allergies. To ensure that nobody has to experience such sadness, she's come up with a stand-up gluten-free alternative.

What Worked: These dark chocolate whoopie pies are just about as close to the original ones, and the marshmallow fluff in the filling ups the authentic factor infinitely.

What Didn't: All clear here. We're loving this g-free dessert option

Suggested Tweaks: This recipe makes for some pretty serious whoopies. If you prefer yours on a smaller scale feel free to adjust the size and baking time to suit your whoopie needs.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of How to Cook Gluten-Free to give away.
