This is fantastic! I just used the cookie part - I had made pumpkin whoopie pies and those had a cream cheese frosting filling. I had some filling left over and wanted to try "real" whoopie pies so I made these. They were soooooooo good! I made the cookies fairly small and cooked them for about 12 minutes. The frosting was very sweet, and these had less sugar than some recipes I looked at. The combination is perfect!
