Amish Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Dana S.


I first sampled these whoopie pies after my daughter Alisha choose them, after winning a prize for a cake walk, at a school Fall festival. We enjoyed them on the way home that night! We liked them so much, The next day, I ask the secretary in the office if she knew who had brought these whoopie pies in for the cake walk. The secretary knew who it was and requested the recipe for me. My daughter brought the recipe home in her book bag the following day! All though I never personally meet this woman, I am so grateful for her generosity in sharing this wonderful recipe with me.
