    I want to attempt to make these for the first time and I want to know something:

    I'm very new to baking and I just love it. It relaxes me and I enjoy it a great deal. I have a book on these French cookies and, though they do seem complicated, as I study the recipe more, the better I understand. However, I am wondering the following:

    Why do we need to 'pipe' these French cookies?
    And, instead, can I try baking them in a whoopie pie pan? If so, would I need to pipe them?

    I don't have bags at the moment, or tips, so if I need to 'pipe' them, can I run them through something similar?

    I am an amateur as you see, and I'm trying to understand some things. any info would be helpful!!
