Lemon Whoopie Pies

Lemon Whoopie Pies can either be filled with lemon curd (lemon butter) or whipped cream for a light and tasty sweet sandwich.

Traditionally whoopie pies are made of chocolate and sandwiched together with a light, fluffy filling. But in this day and age no one seems to stick to much to tradition when it comes to food flavors. Hence we now have other fantastic whoopie pie flavors such as red velvet, pumpkin and, of course lemon.

This lemon whoopie pie recipe is easy to make and the filling can be anything you like. I have had them filled with cream cheese filling, lemon curd, whipped cream, or a mixture of cream and fresh berries. Strawberries and raspberries always seems to blend well with lemon so add some sliced fresh berries to the filling for a fruity flavor.
