While you’re at Russo’s picking up pound after pound of cranberries, don’t forget to save room for a delicious bakery treat: pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese filling. “I often think Russo’s baked goods and pastries are fine, but not particularly special or anything,” says Spenbald. But the whoopie pies are different: “Good LORD these were tasty!” They’re “huge and delicious,” sighs rlh. Cheap, too: $3.29 for two, each of which can easily feed two people.
