Mom's Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup softened butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla

For Filling:
4 oz cream cheese
6 tablespoons softened butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat softened butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Then add pumpkin and vanilla. Whisk together dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to the wet ingredients. Place spoonfuls onto baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. These should have a cakey texture. 
Wait until outside pieces are completely cool. Then mix together ingredients for the filling. Use the filling to ice half of the outside pieces and then top the iced "cakes" with another piece to complete your whoopie pie. 
Share these bits of fall with someone you love to warm your day.
