Making whoopie!

I have an open invitation for bringing desserts to family dinners and Thanksgiving is no exception.
I was given this whoopie pie cook book and a whoopie pan at my bridal shower in the spring and Thanksgiving seems like the perfect time to experiment with some flavor combinations. I had only made these once before, so I went on a limb doing something somewhat new to me and luckily it worked out in my favor. I made pumpkin whoopie pies with maple vanilla bean filling rolled in graham cracker crumbs and a chocolate cake with salted peanut butter filling. The pumpkin cake batter was pretty thick and made for a very fluffy and thick cake. The chocolate batter was thinner and really nice to work with.  I'm looking forward to baking more whoopie pies from this book- the flavors are sound so good and despite being slightly time consuming, they aren't too complicated.
