I can’t wait to make these for my nieces and nephews. They are going to love them!
I have a surprising secret to tell all of you. Are you ready? Pumpkin Pie is my favorite dessert…I think. The reason being is because it isn’t incredibly sweet. This has not always been the case. For the longest time, my favorite dessert was regular cheesecake. I guess to some degree it still is. Cheesecake doesn’t have to be as sweet, but Pumpkin Pie is definitely one of my most beloved holiday desserts. However, I have never been a big fan of other pumpkin desserts. I know I am weird.
Let’s see I’ve had Pumpkin Loaf and I hated it! It was gross ( at least the way I had it). The cake was spongy and the filling was just……blah. I had pumpkin brownies. Those were alright. However, I am not too sure about the combination of flavors between pumpkin and chocolate. I have also had some sort of Pumpkin cookie that was okay but not my cup of tea.Personally, I like cookies a that are a little more dense. However, I do like these Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies. I don’t know why, or what it is, but they aren’t that bad. In fact, they are incredible. I think they are perfect for the fall and a great for kids. I’ve never been a fan of whoopie pies, but I think these are a winner and now a new pumpkin favorite for me.
