The Whoopie Cookie has made its way south... to Savannah! And are now located at the Express Café and Bakery.
Whoopie cookies/pies are considered a New England phenomenon and a Pennsylvania Amish tradition. They're one of Maine's best known and most loved comfort foods. Mainers will even claim that they were weaned on whoopie cookies/pies. In Maine, these treats are more like a cake than a pie or a cookie, as they are very generously sized (about hamburger size). They're so big that you'll want to share one with a friend. A big glass of milk is almost mandatory when eating a whoopie pie.
