This is the FIRST pumpkin recipe I’m sharing this fall season! These scrumptiously moist and delicious pumpkin whoopie pies!
Or, as they are called in our house, moon pies! Which is what both Michael and I called them growing up.
Whatever you call these delectable treats, they do have a little background story that I thought was kind of funny.
In an article, I found in the Farmer’s Almanac, I learned that Whoopie Pies originated from New England and were first made by the Amish wives from remnants of cakes and frosting. The name itself came from the men who were said to yell “Whoopie” when they opened their lunch boxes and found these goodies!
