This is the only place to buy whoopie pies when in Lancaster. Four different flavors, always fresh, stuffed with icing. Whenever we get a craving, we order on-line and have them shipped. A little expensive, but definitely worth it.

Known about this hidden gem for years. Great local bakery. Whoopie Pies, and Shoo Fly pie are specialties. Very nice rural setting.

Anytime we are in Amish country, we stop at Bird in Hand Bakery. I always make sure I have quarters to feed the goats outside. Then I go in and we usually get the Molasses and Sugar Cookies. They melt in your mouth!
