Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe
My 8 yr old nephew wasn't feeling well yesterday so he came home from school early and Aunt Shelly got to spend the afternoon with him. We decided to make up a batch of Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. He handled mixing the batter and also did the whoopie pie filling. They sure aren't the cutest whoopie pies you ever saw LOL but overall, I think he did a great job! Here is the recipe:

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe

3 c. pumpkin puree
3 c. granulate sugar
1 1/2 c. vegetable shortening
3 large eggs
5 1/2 c. all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Cream pumpkin, sugar, shortening and eggs together in a large bowl. Gradually add dry ingredients. Drop them from a tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Vanilla Filling Recipe:

2 egg whites, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. confectioners sugar
1 1/2 c. vegetable shortening

In a medium sized bowl beat egg whites, vanilla, confectioners sugar well. Then add in the shortening and beat again until smooth. Spread filling between 2 pumpkin cookie halves.

I had to laugh at the name of it. I've never heard of whoopie pies. Your nephew did well for someone who wasn't feeling well. Hope he's feeling better soon.
