These Orange Creamsicle Whoppie Pies were born from a flavor memory….Notice how certain flavors can evoke strong memories? I grew up in Southern California, surrounded by Citrus… oranges, lemons, limes and funny little kumquats. The taste of citrus takes me back there.
The memories are strong…. the scent of orange blossoms in the air…. playing hide and seek between the trees…. and always, the musical sound that told us the ice cream man was nearby. (My friend Sandra, had a father with the most PIERCING whistle. He could stop that Ice Cream Man at 100 yards. What an excellent talent to have!!)
And we could choose our favorites… I almost always picked Orange Creamsicles! I loved… still love … Orange Creamsicles. Those popsicles with orange surrounding vanilla ice cream. Yum … and my bare feet getting sticky from orange drips..
I miss that…You know what I mean, that .. not a care in the world feeling… the feeling that the days are endless and filled with possibility… and calories never counted.
Orange Creamsicle Whoopie Pies have that flavor, and to me, they bring back the memories of not having a care in the world.

Medium Scoop- Perfect for Scooping Whoopie Pies
You can use a spoon to scoop the batter or dough for cookies, whoopie pies and cupcakes, but more and more I find it is easier and much neater to use an ice cream/cookie scoop with a release mechanism.
Besides, they come out even, which makes the whoopie pies easier to fill.
