Churro Whoopie Pies are the way of the future!
There are Whoopie Pies and there are Churro Whoopie Pies.
Okay, I hope that what I am about to say does not offend anyone or seems like an indirect offensive statement, but I wouldn’t mind if I had Latino or Hispanic in my family because that ethnic group can throw down! I use to wish that I had a distant Italian family who would find me and invite me to their cottage in Tuscan, Italy to have a huge Italian dinner with all of the traditional dishes made in true authentic Italian form. We would drink stupid amounts of red wine ( I don’t even like red wine), laugh and talk very loudly, and talk about why Italian chefs are way better than French chefs. That is if I had an extended Italian Family.
Seeing how that has yet to proven, I will imagine what life would be like if I had an extended Latino family. This is probably a bit more realistic considering the pigmentation conflict between me and the Italians. I imagine being invited to a distance Latino family’s house and being feed the most amazing tacos with handmade corn tortillas, guacamole, foreign Latino dishes, and Churros. I’m talking the best Churros that I could ever imagine. Oh! And Margaritas! Lot’s of Margaritas (I love them). I dream about eating a ridiculous amount of food from other cultures all the time and wish I knew someone who could make me a delicious authentic meal that would make me dream. Just like how these Churro Whoopie Pies will make you dream.
I actually became inspired to make such a recipe from an Instagram photo I saw. I believe it was a Churro Sandwich with some sort of filling…or was it ice cream? I am not sure, but the picture looked so delicious that it made me want to make my own. I am absolutely in love with these Churro Whoopie Pies. Everything about this power combo works! The Churro Sandwich are soft in the middle and crisp on the outside. Just like an actual Churro! The Whoopie Pie filing is pretty basic but I added extra vanilla extract. I add extra vanilla extract to everything. It just makes everything taste better.
So, the moral of the story is this, next to my food, Italian and Hispanic/Latino food is my absolute favorite. I get into a lot of trouble with these food genres, which is why God has not allowed me to have a direction connection to either one of these cultures (that I know of). If I did, I would not be a healthy food blogger. In the meantime, I will chow down on these Churro Whoopie Pies and day dream about food all day long and who I go through my Facebook friends to see if I have an Italian or Hispanic/Latino friend who can make delicious food for me.
