Y’all know that I was pretty much born, bred, and raised in the south. Or the southwest, as the case may be, since I live west of the Mississippi. And growing up, I’ll admit that Whoppie Pies made me laugh. There’s just something about the name that makes me giggle a little. But it never kept me from wolfing one down when my dad would splurge. These are easy, yummy, and nostalgic.
