It's really not pie, nor a cake. The origin of this chocolate treat is said to have it's origin from the Pennsylvania Dutch region on up to Maine, with no concrete ownership or claims on them. Call-em what you wish, these hand-size round cakes, think Drake's Devil Dog only round, AKA Gobs. For most people, they bring back wonderful childhood memories. Their true delight is in the chocolate cake with the creamy filling. These pics bring back great memories of my Nana Rose in her kitchen making biscotti. You go girls!
