Phenomenal Pumpkin Whoopie Pie - Good Food Store, Bethel, Maine

LindaWhit | Jul 9, 201010:06 AM

I was in Woodstock, ME over the holiday weekend visiting my sister's and BIL's cabin they're building. Sis and I made a couple of trips out on Saturday and Sunday - and one place we stopped was the Good Food Store in Bethel on Route 2. Sis bought a few things, and I had fun exploring a very nice little store (with a good BBQ trailer outside, BTW!) but she was disappointed that they didn't have their pumpkin whoopie pies wrapped on the counter.

We asked about them and one woman said "They're making them right now but it'll be about a half hour". When checking out, another woman behind the counter said "Let me go check on them!" She came back a few minutes later saying "They hadn't yet filled one, so I did it for you - here you go!" and handed over

One. Ginormous. Pumpkin. Whoopie. Pie.

So startlingly large and overstuffed, I blurted out "Holy crap! Look at the size of that sucker!" (although I used a different letter for the "s" in the word "sucker") The woman just cracked up and said "Yeah, we get that a lot." :-)

Went back to the cabin, and after lunch, Sis cut it into quarters. Because seriously? That's ALL you can eat - the pumpkin cake is tender with a very good crumb and a very good pumpkiny flavor. The icing in between is sweet, but not cloyingly so. I wish I had taken a picture of it.

I *think* they cost $2.35 or close to that? Seriously good stuff. My BIL probably had the remaining quarter of whoopie pie after coming off the roof from shingling on Sunday. :-)

Hmmm...tried to add a link but it doesn't come up in the linky-link below - here it is:
