I posted last week about a place in Dayton that I've found to procure wonderful whoopie pies. This shop's presence is a great way to get me to accompany my wife to the Second Street Market in downtown Dayton each week where she operates a wild bird seed and supply booth. The whoopie pies come from a booth called Thistle and this week I had to choose between a traditional chocolate and vanilla whoopie pie or the more offbeat gingerbread with raspberry filling. Guess which I chose?
One word to describe it: YUM! You can read more about Thistle on the owner's blog. The whoopie pies are not your typical Amish-made heavy confections loaded with lard and the size of a dinner plate. These are more manageable, a more contemporary twist on the Amish version.
