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 them.

Any carrot cake fans in the house? Us too! These carrot cake whoopie pies have all the flavor of traditional carrot cake but no plate and fork needed. The cookie is tender and full of carrot cake flavor. The cream cheese filling is sweet and creamy. It brings all the carrot cake flavors together. We loved them rolled in pecans. The nuts add flavor and make for a pretty appearance. These are a perfect dessert for any occasion. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
