Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

I have been looking through some old posts on Facebook. Here is one I found from 2011 that I want to share with you. It introduces a recipe I think you'll like.


We have a new addition to our household, a sweet little 8-pound boy. 
...Perhaps I should explain--there's no baby stroller on the front porch and my husband isn't handing out cigars. We recently rescued an abandoned cat. He was dirty, infested with fleas, and near starvation. And although he's almost 2 years old (the veterinarian's guess), his many weeks/months of malnutrition have apparently stunted his growth. His meager diet of mice and birds has also left him with a very sensitive digestive system. So once a week I cook a pot of brown rice, poach a chicken breast, and steam a danish squash or sugar pumpkin. 
One pumpkin or squash is more than a little  black kitty can eat--even one as hungry as Pumpkin (yes, that's what we named him). So I'm constantly on the lookout for new ways to use leftover mashed pumpkin.

And with that introduction, I shared a recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. 

You  know you need this. Pumpkin spice is EVERYWHERE. (I even saw a reader-board sign at an auto repair shop saying "special price all this month on pumpkin spice oil changes").
