I think all of the food we made for Clara’s party was well received, but the whoopie pies were the clear favorite. They were popular with everyone, and I got so many “Is this recipe on your blog?” questions that I knew I had to post the recipe right away.
Most people think of whoopie pies as a dessert, but I knew I wanted to make savory ones for Clara’s party. Since Frito Pie was the main dish, I wanted something cornbread-esque to have as a side. I’m not at all surprised at how quickly these whoopies disappeared. I mean, let’s be real here. It’s goat cheese, bacon and chives sandwiched between two slightly spicy cornbread cakes. There’s pretty much no way you can go wrong with that combination.
