My friend Jen's birthday is Sept. 6th, which pretty much always falls in the busiest time of year for any school teacher. Because of this, she got shafted out of a peanut butter chocolate cake of her own this year. To make amends, I made a peanut butter whoopie pies for her housewarming last night.
I know it seems ironic, but I'm actually not much of a cake person when it comes to eating cake. Whoopie pies do absolutely nothing for me from the ingesting point of view, but they were surprisingly easy and fun to make.
I followed the Martha Stewart recipe for mini pumpkin whoopie pies to get the cookie/cake part. Then I used my regular peanut butter buttercream recipe for filling. Some of them were then rolled in crushed Reese's Pieces. Those thing, by the way, are as good as I remember them.
