Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

For some of you pumpkin might strictly be an autumnal flavor but for me it's a favorite to be enjoyed year-long.  I absolutely love it in sweets - pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie - so delicious!  I successfully tackled chocolate whoopie pies last month so I wanted to try my luck with a pumpkin version.

The dilemma was finding a great recipe.  As I was researching online one name kept popping up, One Girl Cookies.  The pumpkin whoopie pies sold in their bakery are renowned in Brooklyn and beyond.   Unfortunately I've never had the pleasure of tasting them myself but I figured all those fans couldn't be wrong.  

As luck would have it they recently published their first cookbook which included the famous pies.  Score!  I tell you these whoopie pies are the real deal - moist, fluffy and with just the right amount of spices.  I was instantly smitten.   If you don't want them too sweet you should skip the filling recipe in the cookbook like I did and use cream cheese miracle frosting instead.  

Do yourself a favor - don't wait until October to make these, make them now!
