{pumpkin} whoopie pies

Delicious. That’s all you need to know about these whoopie pies.

Make them, today, you won’t regret it!

Bite size pumpkin cake, with cream cheese frosting. Pure amazingness.

Here’s what you’ll need…

* butter
* sugar {not pictured}
* canned pumpkin
* eggs
* vanilla
* flour {not pictured}
* baking soda & baking powder
* cinnamon, ginger & salt

Do you have all of those ingredients? Great, mix them up {I followed a recipe on tastykitchen.com but it’s no longer there!} I used my mini ice-cream scoop to scoop batter onto the cookie sheet. Bake and let cool.

Once they’ve cooled, and you’ve *tested* one of two….whip together the frosting ingredients.

* powdered sugar
* cream cheese
* butter
* vanilla

Place about a teaspoon of the icing on the flat side of one pie, sandwich with a  second pie, and enjoy!
