My friend Dixie and I have a tradition of meeting once a month for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. We have been doing this for quite some time and enjoy spending the time together. We talk about lots of things and in December I told her that I was looking for a recipe for whoopee pies for my grandson when he visited and I could not fine one. She immediately remembered a recipe she had clipped that would be a good option. She scanned that to me and it really makes me laugh sometimes to think of how technical we can be even though we are in our mid 60’s.
As I read the recipe, I thought a good option for my grandson would be to bake chocolate chip cookies and put the filling in them because he loves chocolate chip cookies. I was also pressed for time and buying prepared cookie dough was a good option for me too. When he arrived, I was a little disappointed when he realized he did not like them. I did not strike out though because my granddaughter loved them. I had other goodies baked that my grandson loved.
As I am sitting here in North Carolina, waiting, waiting, waiting and waiting for a snowstorm, I thought this would be a good option for a snowy day, Valentines Day or as an after school snack. This can always be prepared and frozen for a special occasion or for a snow day, should that ever happen.
In the South when snow is forecasted everyone gets so excited and we all go out and get milk and bread. The excitement builds until the snow begins and of course the kids love playing in the snow. The snow for our area has been forecasted since last weekend and I haven’t seen a flake yet. That is all everyone is talking about and I am getting a little impatient. I want it to come and just be over with.
I am so thankful I have friends like Dixie that I can depend on because sometimes even with all the weather technology, you sure can’t depend on the weather forecast or the possibility of snow. I have printed the recipe below from my scanned copy that I received from Dixie and I am also giving you a link to the recipe that I found on the Taste of Home website: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/chocolate-creme-cakes
