These whoopie pies are so unbelievably soft and full of yummy fall flavor. An all time hit at our house, they do not last long. I usually can't even get them all cooled enough to frost before hands are snatching them up. If you are having a holiday get together, people over for dinner, a cookie exchange or really just because these are the ones you want to go to! They will not disappoint I can promise you that!

Pumpkin Whoopie PiesPreheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together brown sugar, sugar, oil and pumpkin.
Add eggs one at time, mixing well after each addition, followed by the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined.
Using a pastry bag with a round tip, or a big zip top plastic bag with one corner snipped, squeeze out concentric circles of batter, starting from the middle and working outward until the circles are about 2 inches in diameter.
Bake for 11 minutes and cool on a rack

If you asked me 3 years ago if I had ever made cinnamon rolls the answer would have been. NO, I'm too scared to make those. But fast forward to today & the answer would be I make them all the time. My boys love to make this one with me, the spreading butter over the dough and sprinkling brown sugar onto the butter is their favorite part. Great recipe for the holidays, cold snowy mornings, or just because you want to bake something special with your littles. I have not had these fail on me yet. If you make these once you will be asked to make them again! Every bite is like a big warm hug!
