Dawn's favorite cookies are chocolate peppermint whoopie pies. She says, "Whoopie pies are one of our family favorite treats, and when paired with cool peppermint, it's perfect for the holidays."

I have to say, those are some pretty wicked good-looking whoopies. (I am not calling them "pies" as I am still not recuperated from last month.) And I love the facts about, er, whoopies and cocoa and baking powder she includes with the recipe.
