Personal Notes:
To many in our family, Whoopie Pies and Aunt Ernestine are synonymous. Just the mention of these cookies brings a smile and memories of baking them in Aunt Ernestine's kitchen at the old farmhouse. I'm sure my sisters and I made quite a mess but I don't recall, Ernestine never would have made a fuss over a little mess. Evidence of that is when Andrea fell into a fresh cowpile. She cried but Ernestine just rinsed her off with the garden hose - and Uncle Roger just laughed.
