Whoopie Pies ~ Oatmeal and Raisin

Whoopie Pies ~ Oatmeal and Raisin

Cupcakes are my favorite but whoopie pies….well….they are perfect!  Two soft little cookie cakes protecting a sweet icy filling.  What more could you want from a dessert? 😉  For some reason my mind goes to oatmeal this time of year ~ a warm bowl of oatmeal for breakfast…oatmeal raisin granola and of course, Oatmeal for Dessert.  I’m also a softie when it comes to the kids so I let them have these for a snack if they want ~ but never breakfast ~ I’m not that much of a softie (yet).
