The season of fall brings out the true baker in me. Quite honestly its the smells that fill the house while the noise of our little ones fill the halls of our home. It's brings JOY to my soul. I cherish this time of year. It's also the best time of year to run outside because of the cool weather which makes it "ok" to have all the sweets & baked goods in the house! This recipe is fairly easy but just a little time consuming! You will want to bring this to any fall holiday parties or if you are having people over during the thanksgiving season! They will not disappoint I can promise you that!
For the crust:
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!

Beat together brown sugar, sugar, oil and pumpkin.
Add eggs one at time, mixing well after each addition, followed by the vanilla.

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.
