Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Fall always feels a bit melancholy to me. I think it still, even after all these years, reminds me of going back to boarding school after awesome summers at home. (sniffle, sniffle)
Luckily fall food is awesome…roasted vegetables, stews, apple crisp and pumpkins. Yesterday I took a stab at pumpkin whoopie pies for Lionel and Julie's Oktoberfest BBQ.
I felt a little ridiculous making these cutesy little desserts. I purposely skipped Martha Stewart's version of the recipe to maintain some semblance of badass-ness. But despite their cuteness, they are really good and not as high maintenance to make as I originally assumed. And washing them down with a good German beer made me feel a little cooler. Then this morning I sent a few to school for Xavier and Annecy’s teachers. My coolness took a big hit.
