PUMPKIN WHOOPIE PIE RECIPE
I made these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies the other day. They are incredibly moist and packed with pumpkin flavor.
When I eat pumpkin I like the smack you in the face, full of spices pumpkin flavor not just a hint of pumpkin flavor that has you wondering, “Is this pumpkin?”
I make a ton of goodies all the time; so much that my family has naturally weaned themselves from going hog wild on any of it for sheer survival purposes.
My kids have no idea how good they have it. The neighbor kids are pretty keen to it though and show up randomly to play (i.e. see what cookies are there to eat today).
Imagine a whole Tupperware full of these sitting in my fridge. I ate half of one, rationing myself, just to come back to it being mysteriously gone. This happened again. And again.
The culprit was my husband. Who has an amazing self control but apparently these were his kryptonite.
