    Pumpkin Whoopie Pies #recipe #sundaysupper

    So, we thought fall would be the ideal time to celebrate the whoopee pie, incorporating one of Autumn’s superstars, the pumpkin. Our pumpkin whoopee pies are sweet but not overpowering, they have a hint of spice and a cream cheese filling that has just a whisper of maple. Perfect for an afternoon snack with a cup of tea.

This trip afforded me […]
