Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies

I love Whoopie Pies! They are really easy to make. You can also add 1/2 cup raisins, if you like, to the cake ingredients. You can use Walnuts instead of pecans, if you prefer, to roll the finished pies in. The Women's Fellowship Group at my church recently took a meal to a local hospice home and I made these pies to share. They were a big hit! I hope that you enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Any carrot cake fans in the house? Me too! And these wonderfully moist and creamy Whoopie Pies sure do that carrot cake flavor justice... and they're portable! Great for a bake sale or special after-school treat.
