A couple of weeks ago we had a bit of a cool spell so I rushed to bake something up with pumpkin. These were tasty although I’ll be the first to admit that I still like our good old fashioned pumpkin roll more than any other pumpkin baked goodie (sorry that post is still missing the photo I lost several years ago!) These were good though and everyone always loves whoopie pies! Perfect treat for Thanksgiving to have alongside your pie since they’re not too big and a sampler of desserts is always the way to go 😉 Enjoy!
