Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

These weren't on the official menu "plan", but I just couldn't resist making them.  They are SO good!!  And since we aren't having pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving I thought a little something pumpkin would be good to have:)


Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
 
Cream together:
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
 
Beat in:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
 
Stir the following together, then add to above mixture:
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cloves
 
Drop in heaping spoonfuls (you want them to be even in size) onto baking sheets. 
Bake at 350F for 10-12 min or until firm when you touch the top of them.  Cool.
 
Spread filling on the bottom of one cookie then place another cookie on top of the
filling to make a sandwich.
 
Filling:
2 egg whites
1/2 cup shortening (you could sub butter if you wanted)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Blend until smooth.  

Enjoy!!
