WHOOPIE PIES

There are many recipes out there, but this is one I have used since my children were small.  I used to make a double batch and wrap each one in waxed paper to take camping.  I brought them to a club meeting one time and a man almost swooned (fainted) when he saw them and tasted them.  He said he'd been trying to find a recipe for them ever for many years.  I gave him the recipe, but every time I'd see him he's ask if I had brought any whoopie pies.

WASHINGTON STEW


Our mother, Barbara Mackie,  called this Washington Stew, but we don't know where the name came from  We used to enjoy it on Friday nights because our parents went grocery shopping and this was quick to make.  My son, Peter loved it and our mother used to make it for him and Marcia when they would visit.  I made it for my family and still do.  It is a go to, easy and quick.
