Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Fall is in full bloom!  To celebrate this colorful and tasty season, I wanted to make my kids a special treat with pumpkin.  It’s one of my favorite fall flavors, and I love its aroma in my home this time of year.   I found dozens of delicious pumpkin recipes at BettyCrocker.com, and decided to make the whoopie pies below for my boys.   If you’re in the pumpkin mood too, but are looking for something different, be sure to check out the other pumpkin recipes at BettyCrocker.com here>
