My First Whoopie Pie!

It's that time of year...I've popped open my first can of pumpkin and welcomed the fall season with some pumpkin-spiced baked goodies.
I love a good whoopie pie with its creamy, frosting-like filling sandwiched between two soft cookies. After all these years, I've never made one myself so took this pumpkin can-opening opportunity to make some seasonal whoopie pies.
And since I was sharing them at work, I thought the normal sized 4 inch whoopie pie would be too big (I've noticed people enjoy eating bite-sized goodies), so I used my cookie scoop to create about 2 1/2 dozen whoopie pies.
The cream cheese filling with the pumpkin cookie created the perfect autumnal treat. A colleague even said to me that the whoopie pies would elicit a marriage proposal...can't say that happened but I'm glad they were the perfect pick-me-up for an exhausting week at work.
