Pie Recipes #196 - Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
More like little filled cakes or cookies, but they're called pies, and they sound so good that I had to include them here on the pie blog! :)
Thanks to Jeannie V. for sending in the delicious sounding recipe...

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cup shortening
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 eggs
2 cups pumpkin
Beat together the shortening and sugar. Mix in the egg. Sift the dry ingredients and add alternately with pumpkin. Drop onto a greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes. After the cookies cool, spread them with the following filling and top with another cookie.

4 T. flour
2 T. vanilla
4 T. milk
1 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix the above very well, beating until fluffy. Spread on cooled cookies.
