Oh, the whoopie pie. The perfectly named cookie-pie-cake dessert sandwich that earned its moniker, according to food historians, from the "whoopie" emitted by Amish farmers upon discovering the treat packed in their lunches.

Originally known as hucklebucks or creamy turtles, the little wonders have become an American tradition. And there's no better way to celebrate the season than to make a pumpkin version, like this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker.
