Homemade Gingerbread Whoopie Pies Recipe

Whoopie pies... not a pie. Not a cookie ....  mini cake?  Or a mix of all three?  Either way, they are certainly yummy and loved by all! Chocolate whoopie pies, peanut butter whoopie pies, mint chip, pumpkin, cookie, brownie, there are so many different kinds. I have even had a maple bacon whoopie pie.  Yes, it was fantastic.  Great, now I want bacon. Well, let's at least get this recipe up for you  first.

Soft, sweet and spicy gingerbread with a creamy filling. Pair with some hot cocoa and you have the perfect winter treat!

 Semi-Homemade Version

Not everyone has the time to bake from scratch. I often do both semi and homemade depending on the dish and the amount of time that I have.  Semi-homemade can be just as good as long as you don't skimp on too much of the process. For example, use a store bought cake mix, but make a killer homemade frosting!

Instead of making your gingerbread completely from scratch, try using a store bought mix.  I prefer Krusteaz 

Prepare according to the package instructions and then follow the recipe above for the filling.
