Ever heard of a “whoopie pie”? Ever bitten into a “black moon” or a “gob”? These are all names for the whoopie pie, considered a New England classic and a Pennsylvania Amish tradition. Do you consider this treat a cookie, a pie, a sandwich, or a cake? Join the Friends of the Millburn Library in learning from the best, Sweet Samantha, as we make our very own “BFO” (for Big Fat Oreo). It is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of cake with a sweet creamy filling. Register soon to learn, bake, and taste for yourself why Maine considers the whoopie pie its official state treat.
