I gave this 5 stars because it tasted good and doesn't have shortening in it. The cake part didn't puff up like I expected and remained sort of flat. Also, I decided that it's just too labor intensive to do again. In the future, I'll make more of a cake and cut it into individual servings instead. Everyone loved them, though!
I gave this 5 stars. My family loved these whoopie pies. My copy of this recipe is slightly different. My copy calls for 2 egg yolks, 2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup oil, no cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1 1/2 c canned pumpkin, and 4 1/2 cup flour. The rest is the same. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Christine (internetnut)
