Making Whoopie...pies, pumpkin whoopie pies

My sister is on her way to Louisville which can only mean one thing, I have to whip something creative up for her judgemental taste buds. While on a run earlier this week, which just happens to end at the Wine Rack no matter the millage or the day, I noticed pumpkin beer in the window, a favorite between the sisters. I came home and begin looking for that extra special pumpkin recipe when I stumbled upon one of my favorite blogs. After reading the list of ingredients, there was no way I could compete to make it my own so I present you with Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, from Erin's Food Files.

While you're there, check out her other amazingly delicious treats. Erin is a good friend of Megan and from what I hear, quite the chef. My whoopie pies are in the cooling stage but from licking the bowl throughout the process, I can already tell these are going to be a hit!
* This is not a picture of the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies as my camera is toast. However, this is my jack-o-lantern from last Halloween, so it counts.


  1. Thanks for the shout out! OMG girl you are gonna LOOOOOVE those Whoopie Pies! I *may* or may not have just finished eating the last of the leftover (and frozen...) maple cream cheese frosting. It goes amazing with pumpkin beer actually. :D

  2. And what was the sister's verdict? Was she impressed with your tasty treats? Pumpkin beer is a perfect way to wash it all down.
    (PS-2 more wks till you all come up here!!!!!)

  3. Erin: These were amazing, so delicious! I can't wait to try your maple peanut butter cookies as well.

    Nickie: I am so excited, I've been counting down for the past 3 months!

    The sister's verdict was that Whoopie Pies are supposed to be bigger, then I explained that they are so rich, you couldn't eat much more than what I had provided her, she agreed. Thumbs up all around!
