Whoopie! for this pan

I bought this whoopie pie pan on sale from Williams-Sonoma, because I wanted to make small tartlets without having to wash a bunch of miniature pans. It has an excellent nonstick surface and is heavy/thick enough to promote even heat distribution.

I already have 4" tart shells and a muffin-top baking pan that also has 4" wells. But I find this size portion a tad large.
The 2¾" diameter of the whoopie pan wells yields portions half the size of the 4" ones, which is ideal if you want "just a little" dessert.

I think it would also be good for making a baked version of blinis and other hors d'oeuvres. A nice addition to my equipment arsenal. I also have mini-muffin tins but they are a smaller diameter, and deeper, than this pan's wells.

  1. So you wrote a bunch of things, but you didn't show us any photos of your WHOOPIE pie yet. :)

    Unless you show us some real proofs like photos, we won't know if the pan is really as good as you say it to be. :P

      I will never be making whoopie pies since they hold no appeal for me. Even if I were into food porn, my cheapie cell phone's camera won't take a clear shot of the little rhubarb-orange tartlets.

    2. i've made whoopie pies. i never used a pan..... they came out perfectly when i portioned them on a cookie sheet with an ice cream scoop.

      1. I imagine it would have a number of applications---and I like that it's substantial. Very nice!

        1. Perfect for little muffin tops!!
