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.
