Well, one of my students asked us if we would make some cookies for his niece and nephew to sell at a bake sale to help Haitian children and well... of course I'm going to help out! I wanted to make something I loved as a kid. I then remembered this recipe that I had made last year with peanut butter cream filling. My brain then sent me to Moon Pie land and with that others had memories of them with different names. So here they are in all their glory; Moon, Whoopie, or Scooter Pies! Whatever you call them they are a kids delight.
Oh, and I did include the original idea I had with the peanut butter filling so you can choose the old fashioned pie or the updated version with peanut butter. Why they are called "pie" I don't know but both are very tasty and ought to send you to a very happy place.
