Make Classic Moon Pies at Home
Yahoo Food ^ | Feb 27, 2014 | Sara Bonisteel

Posted on 03/04/2014 1:28:31 PM PST by kingattax

Mardi Gras is Tuesday, March 4, and this year as part of our Fat Tuesday celebration, we asked recipe developer Raquel Pelzel to create a homemade version of MoonPies, a classic treat often tossed from the floats during parades in the Gulf Coast.

Although the MoonPie was born in Tennessee, it’s really a staple in the Gulf South—Mobile, Alabama, even drops an illuminated MoonPie for New Year’s Eve, so we thought who better than Pelzel, who worked with David Guas on his book, DamGoodSweet: Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth, New Orleans Style, to help us create this recipe.

I think they look disgusting. Friends like them, one asked me to make them, but I don’t want to be in the same room with such excess.

As a kid I used to enjoy a moon pie with a Mr. Pibb at my uncle’s Phillips 66 superette on the Geneva Highway in Enterprise, Alabama. I haven’t had one in 40 years.

My pals in NC are horrified if you drink anything besides RC Cola with a moon pie. And Dukes Mayonnaise...but not with a Moon Pie.

Chocolate, marshmallow, and a cookie disgusting? Really?

Such excess? Too funny.

You have to have forgotten the /s

Well, not to discourage the kitchen challenged folk but a box 36 original moon pies is available from Sam’s for a little over $8 pre tax. Probably cost more than that to make 12 from this recipe although without all the fun making them.

Try putting a Moon Pie in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Out of this world.

My daughter has a T-shirt that says “Moon Pies and Dr. Pepper. It’s a Southern Thing”. Good combo!

Actually, I had a few. Don't dislike RC, but don't drink any soft drinks. One of those health nuts? Yep.

Untrue and unfair. SHE is from WA.

One set of grandparents and cousins are deep, deep Mississippi/Louisiana southerners. I love the south, creole cooking, soft-shell crabs. Pralines in my youth. However, and this is where my West Coastness shows, I'm a health food nut. Don't drink, don't smoke, very little sugar, salt, fat. Bored, probably boring, but gee whiz, I'm healthier than the proverbial horse. Could probably get away with a moon pie or two, but after years of food discipline, they honestly do not appeal to me.

Y'all can have my share, Shugah.

I found a Shasta black cherry soda can up on the Stanislaus a few years back. It was the kind you had to open with a “church key” opener. The irony was that the contents read like it was one of todays organic health drinks. Cane sugar, real black cherry and black cherry extract, no artificial stuff/preservatives...

Hey, I'm born and raised Southern, and I believe in healthy eating. However, it's good to treat yourself a little. We all have only so long on this planet.....God has our days numbered.

That said, I can't handle moon pies because I don't like marshmallow, but I would sure as heck love to try some Blue Bell.
