I have decided that I am not fancy enough to be driven anywhere by a “driver”.

I know that sounds pretentious, and it’s not like it happens all the time.

But when I AM being driven somewhere, I basically become a nervous wreck…

Taxi drivers, bus drivers, airport shuttles…nervous wreck.


I’m not necessarily worried about their driving skills, like a sensible person.  No, I get nervous that they are going to kidnap me.  All the time.

On Friday I was lucky enough to be able to attend a fun blogging event in in NYC.  I live about an hour outside the city, so a driver picked me up and took me into New York.


Over the course of the hour that I was in the car I had cast myself in a “ripped from the headlines” episode of Law & Order: SVU.

(Obviously Jennifer Aniston was going to play me.  She was so moved by the news story of the “baking blogger who was tragically kidnapped” that she felt compelled to take a break from her busy movie schedule to star in my episode.)


My driver spoke with a heavy Eastern European accent and smelled like cigarette smoke, basically a mash-up of all the bad-guy-kidnappers from the movie Taken.

I knew that in a matter of hours, I would be on a plane being sold into the sex-trade having to do weird party tricks while wearing sexy lingerie for rich, sexual deviants.


The driver was yelling on the phone to someone pretty much the entire drive.  And at risk of offending half the world, yelling in a foreign language is way scarier than yelling in English.

I was convinced he was angrily negotiating the deal of the human trafficking that was about to occur.  How much was I going for?   What’s the going rate for a 36 year old mom?  Do they know I can bake?

He probably was just having a fight with his wife or something, but logic has never been my forte.


I basically resigned myself to the fact that I was about to die, so I texted Kristan, to say my last goodbyes.  Which is lucky, because she reminded me to pull out a few strands of hair and leave it on the seat for DNA evidence.

It’s good to have smart friends.

Speaking of good friends I also had Oprah’s voice on loop in the back of my mind, “don’t go to the second location“, which was basically pointless at that point because I was already IN THE CAR!  Thanks Oprah, how about you do a show on kidnap-murderer limo drivers?  How am I expected to be prepared?


But since I am obviously here to tell you about my brush with death, you probably already figured out that I was NOT, in fact, sold into the sex trade black market.  Totally lucky too, because I’m not sure my dad has the karate skills of Liam Neeson.

Near miss, my friends.


Annnd, if I was not around to tell the tale , I also couldn’t share with you the genius that are Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies.

Yep, you heard that correctly.


I used my favorite chocolate whoopie pie recipe.

The filling is an egg-free chocolate chip cookie dough.

I know some of you have a fear of salmonella poisoning, so there are no worries.

On the other hand, for someone so scared of kidnapper-limo-drivers I stare salmonella in the face on pretty much a daily basis.

I’m a walking contradiction.

How to Make the Best Whoopie Pie Filling

Mix up your cookie dough…

And fill a ziplock or piping bag…

Squeeze some on top of one of your cookies…sorry about the poo-like swirl.
PhotobucketThen eat!

I had a little extra filling leftover.
And I ALSO happened to have some Chips Ahoy in the pantry. Don’t ask, my kids love them.
Sooo, I did what any normal person would do.
I made Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough filled Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches.
Waste not, want not.
It’s a beautiful thing.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  2. elise

    Do the leftover cookies have to be refrigerated? I made them tonight and they are to die for! Great recipe and an awesome blog!

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever had one but now I want to try one. I saw them once on QVC and people were going crazy calilng in. . . and yes I watch QVC sometimes 🙂

  4. FIRST of ALL… husband is looking at me funny because I’m laughing out loud…and wiping away a few tears reading this post. Oh, don’t you hate when you hear Oprah in your head? 😉 “YOU’RE being kidnapped! And YOU’RE being kidnapped!” 😉 So glad you had Kristan to walk you through the placement of DNA in the car.

    These whoopie pie NEED to happen. Wanna come over? I’ll send a car.

    I totally feel you on that especially since when my Aunt, Uncle and cousin flew to Georgia they got a taxi just to take them to the nearest hotel and he was driving all over and then they demanded he let them out as he was just trying to run up the meter and he refused and LOCKED them in. They were all yelling at him and luckily someone on the sidewalk saw and came over, the taxi driver rolled down his window and the man looked at him and said “Hey I don’t know where your from but in America what your doing is illegal and you need to let them out” That finally did it and he unlocked the doors! Needless to say I will NEVER take a taxi in my life. Also these cookie dough sandwiches look AMAZING! and I loved reading your story up to the recipe hehe

    I don’t comment often but I had to comment on this post…actually I debated whether to comment on this post or on the one from your s’mores whoopie pies as that is the post that motivated me to comment 🙂 I have a confession…I was about to pin these awesome looking/sounding whoopie pies (genius idea putting cookie dough in a whoopie pie) without reading your post…gah! What was I thinking! I’m just now getting around to checking out my favorite blogs after a week of not being able to and I guess I was doing the whole skimming/pinning thing but this little voice said “wait a minute you are totally not going to pin that without reading her hilarious story (your stories always make me laugh) and proceeded to read it and then pin it…and yes, I would have been missing out if I hadn’t read it, I think that I would have been going through escape routes in my mind if i had been me in that car (how good would I be at jumping out of a moving car…hmmm…probably not so good)! So then…I proceed to read your s’mores whoopie pie post and well, I absolutely had to comment…somewhere so you know that one more person reads your blog and loves it and well, those who don’t read it they are losing out!

  7. It makes me so sad I had to decline that event and miss both you and Kristen from Dine and Dish. I am so very glad you did not get kidnapped or die! And also that you lived to make such delicious treats. Is it weird that I would have turned the leftover cookie dough into a dip for pretzels? Yeah, I’m odd.

  8. Don’t even get me started on these whoopie pies. o_O Amazingness!!

    As for your near miss, I hear ya, girl!! I don’t think you’re crazy or that you over reacted one bit!! Next time, text all of your loved ones the make and model of the car… It won’t save your life, necessarily, but at least they can track the psycho down faster!!

  9. Debra Kapellakis

    OK, you squirrelly = Restless, nervous, or unpredictable) girl, you scared me, you made me laugh like a Hyena and then drool like a teething baby! I hope you have a GREAT day!

    Sometimes when I’m out doin’, whatever…running, walking, strolling the mall, I’ll spook myself about the kidnapping thing (too many Lifetime movies, if you ask me) and I’ll hear Oprah in my head, too!! “Don’t go to the second location!” Yikes! She really got in there (another reason why I probably think about the kidnapping thing!)!

    Anyhoo, this whoopie pie filling is genius, GENIUS! These are a few of my favorite things!

  11. Oh my gosh, this has to be the most amazing thing I’ve ever laid my eyes upon. I am definitely making these..they combine my two loves, whoopie pies & cookie dough. Perfect.

  12. Karen

    You are so funny! I was never worried about being kidnapped before, but since you mentioned the black market sex trade I am now. I used to think nothing of putting my college daughter in a taxi to go to the airport or to meet me when I visit, but now I’ll be thinking of you and Oprah and the press. Anyway, the whoopie pies make up for the scare I’ll face later. Thanks for the laugh, and the impending nightmares (oh,and the whoopie pies).

  13. This is probably the funniest post I’ve ever read! I cracked up the entire way through it!!! Glad you made it out ok 🙂

    These whoopie pies look awesome too! One time I made brownie batter filled chocolate chip cookies… so kind of like an opposite recipe 🙂

  14. That is a funny story!!!! I am so glad I’m not the only paranoid person! I’m not usually in a situation where I need a driver . My paranoia is of some one braking in my home! I keep a golf club candy! Too much tv that’s for sure!

    Like the egg free cookie dough. That dollop looks so yummy!

  15. That story just made you my favorite blogger. I’m mean, I’ve always been a fan but now you are my number one. I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time and to top it off, an amazingly yummy recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Yummm! So glad you didn’t get sold into sex slavery. Incidentally, Taken is perhaps my father’s favorite movie…which he reminds me of every time I travel anywhere by myself. And I am always, always instructed not to share cabs. Or go anywhere other than churches, basically. Oh, Liam Neeson, why did you do this to me?
