Pumkin Whoopie Pies

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Today at preschool we used paints, so of course, that means spreading newspapers down...EVERYWHERE! Ha! In the process I just happened to see this yummy recipe on one of the newspapers and had to cut it out and make it tonight! It is fall, it is pumpkin season! My daughter helped me make them. She thought they were pretty tasty.

Is there any other kind of whoopie I can make other than pumpkin?
Well, I mean, because I don't like pumpkin.
