The piano scene in The Fabulous Baker Boys- in my opinion, hands down one of the sexiest cinematic moments of my generation. Who hasn't fantasized about serenading/seducing a handsome musician while slinking around a baby grand?
Well I may not be a musically talented, french cigarette smoking blonde bombshell, but I can make some whoopie... as in these Chocolate Orange Whoopie Pies.
They may not be as sexy and Beau Bridges circa 1989, but they're just as irresistible.

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
