I’ve been wanting a whoopie pie pan for awhile.
I just went to Bed Bath & Beyond and picked up the last two. If you live in San Diego, the Mission Valley BB & B is fresh out of whoopie.
Using 20% off coupons that I hoard and that don’t expire despite a printed expiration date on them (save them and redeem them on your next purchase; this is up to the store’s discretion but I’ve tried in probably 20 stores in 5 states and never had an issue), but the whoopie pie pans were only about $9 bucks each after using a coupon or order on Amazon. Cheap whoopie thrills.
I’ve seen recipes on blogs and on Pinterest floating around for cookies made in whoopie pans and they always look so good.
It was one of those wild hairs that until I try this myself, I cannot rest. The baking bug has bitten, whoopie style.
First up will be a batch of Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies in the whoopie pans.
And then I’m thinking of trying Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies so that I can really stuff the Snickers bars in really deep into the cookies and make fat stuffed cookies..
The cavities appear to hold about twice the amount of dough compared to regular cookies so I’m sure I’ll be able to stuff lots of candy into my cookies, which sounds perfect.
I love my donut pans
I use my full size donut pan for Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze
And for Krispy Kreme style donuts at home
I used the mini-size donut pan for Baked Eggnog Vanilla Donuts with Eggnog Rum Glaze
The mini pan is more of a P.I.T.A. because you have to be much more careful and precise when pouring the batter and it takes longer than using the full size pan because each cavity is so small, but I’m still glad I have it.
I’ve watched inventory of donut pans at BB & B dwindle over the past few months:
January: I got the last two whoopie pans. Whew.
Looks like at-home donuts are popular and that whoopie making is hotter than ever.
What baking bugs have bitten you lately? What do you want to make?
Have you seen anything interesting or fun that you’re dying to try?
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend and baking up some fun things!
