T Stands For Missed Adventure

 

Himself forwarded me an email. FW: Foliage Forecast Update, Apple Cider Doughnut Whoopie Pies & 85 Best Things to Do in New England. I thought it meant we would be going on an adventure some leaf peeping and then finding these amazing sounding Apple Cider Doughnut Whoopie Pies.

Turns out, Himself wasn't taking me out for Apple Cider Doughnut Whoopie Pies. He had forwarded me a link to a recipe and wanted me to bake Apple Cider Doughnut Whoopies.  So I did. That's the kind of wife I am. Hey Kid, as I'm saying this my wrist is velcroed to my forehead. 🎃 The whoopie pies were a bit of work, but so goood!

Drop by hosts, Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to find out what the rest of the T Stands For gang is up to. If you want to play, include in your Tuesday post a beverage or container for a beverage. Don't forget to link your blog to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's page.

    1. They were a popular dessert in the 50s and 60s. A marshmallow frosting sandwiched between two cake "cookies". The cake was traditionally chocolate.

  2. These look SO good, CJ. However, I would substitute the marshmallow fluff for cream cheese. Not a big fan of that fluff, thank you.

    Thanks for sharing your adorable Whoopie Pies and tea with us, along with the recipe for the pies, for T this Tuesday. They sure look good!

    1. Yeah, the filling combined with the sugar top was a little too sweet.

    1. Sadly, we waited too long for leaf peeping. A Nor'easter passing by today and tomorrow with lots of rain and wind will take a lot of the leaves down.

  4. The whoopie pie looks delicious. And I love your mug. You are being very festive. My husband would do the same thing. Oh an apple pie would taste good...hint...hint. I guess I am the same kind of wife. Have a great T day CJ, and hope you don't get too much rain or wind. Hugs-Erika

    1. Nothing wrong with my wrist. It's a joke. To say when you put your wrist to your forehead palm out, like Woe is me. 🎃

  9. I've never heard of whoopie pies and yours look absolutely delicious. I looked at the recipe and I know that in America cider is a different thing to European cider. Am I right in thinking that cider is apple juice? What we call cider (the alcoholic variety) is called hard cider in the USA? I have both.
    I like your Halloween mug. (I love orange)
    Happy T-Day,
    Hugs,

    1. Cider is made from apples that are cut and ground into a mash. The cider isn't filtered and has bit of pulp still in it. Apple juice goes through a filtration process so it will last longer and has no pulp. Yes, alcoholic cider is called hard cider here.

  10. Once again I won't win the 'Wife of the Year' award. If Husband came to me with this 'hint' I would tell him he has two fully functioning arms so why isn't he making them for ME????? (BTW....'my wrist is velcroed to my forehead'.....please elaborate......)

    1. They were good, but a little too sweet for me. I think next time, I'll skip the rolling the cake in the sugar part.

  12. No cider mill adventure must have been a thing this weekend. We drove up to our familiar cider mill intending to get cider and donuts, but the line was half way across the parking lot, so we didn't have cider. Our guests declined the offer to go to a store that stocks fresh local cider without the adventure. I've always thought of whoopie pies as regional, and not here in Michigan.

    1. I blame you with all your cute, seasonal mugs and I didn't have any Halloween mugs except the blue mug the Eldest left behind. So I bought some Halloween mugs! All your fault :-D
