Amish Pumpkin Whoopie Pies ~ A Blue, Champion, and Best in Show Ribbon Winning Recipe!

It's that time of year again. Fair time! Time to get all of our entries to the fair so they can be judges for opening day, July 3rd, 2013. Good luck to all exhibitors! This is one of my entries.
It is the same recipe I posted about in a previous post. I received it from a generous lady at my daughter's school. We first tried these whoopie pies after choosing them in a cake walk at the schools Fall festival. After we tried them, we liked them so much, I ask the secretary in the office if she knew who had brought these whoopie pies in for the cake walk. The secretary knew who it was and requested the recipe for me. My daughter brought the recipe home in her book bag the very next day! All though I never personally meet this woman, I am so glad she shared this great recipe with me.
