pumpkin whoopie pies ...

I made these yummy pumpkin whoopie pies when I hosted book club last week, and boy they were tasty!

Did you know that the name whoopie pie came about because the Amish women would send them in their husband's lunch pails to surprise them, and when their husband's opened up their lunch and saw them, they yelled, "whoopie!"  I think I would do the same if I were surprised with such a tasty treat!

I used this recipe from annie eats!  I would highly recommend it!  I added a tad bit more maple syrup to the frosting, and used vanilla bean paste instead of regular vanilla.

I think they are perfect for this time of year!
