Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Someone made these last fall for our office and I had to learn.  It is a delicious treat that tastes like nothing else i have ever tasted before!  There are many variations of this recipe but below is an easy to follow one, the kind I like!

Pumpkin pie/cookie part:

2 c. pumpkin
2 eggs, separated
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. oil
3 c. flour
1 tsp. each cloves, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking powder, baking soda & vanilla

 
Filling:
1 lb. 10x sugar
2 egg whites
2 tsp. vanilla
4 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. milk
1 1/2 c. shortening
 
Directions:  Mix together flour, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.  Beat together pumpkin, 2 egg whites, brown sugar, oil and vanilla. Gradually add dry ingredients. Beat well after each addition.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool.

To prepare filling: Beat 2 eggs until stiff. Add vanilla, flour and milk, beat well. Add shortening and 10x sugar. The more you beat it, the fluffier it gets! Spread between 2 cookies.
