Food Network’s “Unwrapped”: Easy as pie episode

“Unwrapped” has been airing during prime time recently, where they go behind the scenes to show you how certain food products are made. Last night I caught the episode on all things pie, from whoopie to pizza.

Speaking of whoopie pies, we saw lots of red velvet ones while in Amish Country earlier this year. I’d always thought of whoopie pies as overgrown Devil Dogs, but lately I’m rethinking that. Whoopie pies may well be the next macaroons (which were the next cupcakes).

In fact, I’m going to attempt to make my own from scratch later this week, from a recipe that was featured in The Washington Post. They have a chocolate outer layer, white-chocolate filling. I hope it’s not too challenging, considering my recent track record of baking failures. If it turns out well, I’ll post the recipe.

**Update: Here’s how the white-chocolate whoopie pies turned out: https://pievcake.wordpress.com/2009/09/21/white-chocolate-whoopie-pies-from-scratch/ **
