This review is from: Whoopie Pies (Cookery) (Hardcover)I loved this book when I got it - loads of recipes, tons of flavours, lovely design & pictures and I really liked the fact it's American as I wanted the authentic flavour. Measuring in US cups not a problem for me as I have them, but if you don't I wouldn't bother, the conversion is a pain.
However, I'm sad to say I've only used this book once. The recipes use a vegetable shortening instead of butter for a 'lighter' flavour, altogether more authentic apparently. I just found them to be greasy and a bit flavourless, a bit synthetic tasting. Perhaps this is the authentic way but give me a buttery whoopie any day. I've been meaning to give them another go with butter instead but never have. I wish I'd bought a different book now...
