It’s Christmas time – so here’s some red, green, and white whoopie pies (although the cookies would be good for Italian holidays as well :). Even if you’re tired of the red and green theme of the holidays, these are still great little cookies.
Have you ever wondered what’s the difference between a whoopie pie, moon pie, and a macaroon?
A whoopie pie is a cake-like cookie sandwich filled with buttercream.
Whereas, a moon pie has a marshmallow filling between two circular chocolate-coated graham crackers.
A French macaroon is a sandwich style cookie made of light meringue-textured cookie (usually made with ground almonds) with a buttercream filling.
