Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Frosting
These are the last of the pumpkin posts for awhile now! I had some extra from when I made the Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups and didn’t want to throw it away. These are really nice. I made a maple frosting for the middle.

Including these whoopie pies I made 6 pumpkin based desserts. That’s a lot of pumpkin! A quick recap Pumpkin Pie with Crunchy Pecan ToppingMini Pumpkin Pies, Pumpkin Pie Candy Cups, Pumpkin Cake Donuts and Pumpkin Cupcakes.
