Hurricane Sandy shut down DC for two days this week, so I took advantage of the extra days off to do some cooking and baking. My favorite of the kitchen experiments was definitely the pumpkin whoopie pies, made from a recipe I found on Pinterest. Yes, Pinterest. I might have a little obsession. I first started using it when I was getting ready to renovate my kitchen and bathroom and needed design ideas. Now I have more recipes than I have time to cook!
The whoopie pie recipe is from Farm Flavor, and is pretty simple and very tasty. To make them mini-sized, I used a mini pastry scoop — just like an ice cream scooper but much smaller. I think the recipe made about 60 mini sandwiches, much to the benefit of my co-workers who have been gobbling them up in the office this morning.
