Amish Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

 My daughter Alisha chose these whoopie pies, after winning the cake walk, at a fall festival held at my youngest daughters school.
I ask if anyone knew who had made them, and the secretary in the office remembered who had brought them in for the cake walk. She ask for the recipe and the lady was gracious enough to bring a copy of the recipe to school the very next day, my daughter brought it home to me, in her book bag. I'm so happy she shared this recipe with me.
