Apple Butter Whoopie Pie with Cinnamon Buttercream Filling

 Next week is Thanksgiving.  Duh.
A whole holiday solely revolving around food.
So what did I do yesterday?
I ordered a diet book.
Not for now, of course..that would just be silly.
For after.
After Thanksgiving…
or maybe after Christmas.
Because who starts a diet before Christmas?
Well, not RIGHT after Christmas…because then there’s New Year’s.
Ok.. definitely after New Years.
So, I will be totally prepared when 2011 rolls around…
  because come January it’s on!
For real this time!
Not like the last time…or the time before that.
My husband asks me why I keep buying diet books.
He doesn’t get it.
He told me that if I put all  my diet books in a backpack and walked around carrying them I would definitely  lose weight.
Meh.
And while that’s mostly true..I would probably throw out my my back in the meantime.
But until January, let’s focus on the food…
I am definitely not the source for learning how to truss a turkey.
But, I can help you out in the dessert department.
Especially in the cute dessert department.
Because we all know that desserts are better when they’re cute.
And really, what’s cuter than a whoopie pie?
This is my first-ever whoopie pie, and I’ll tell ya ~ they were fun.
And tasty.
And cute.
What more can you ask for?
The inspiration for these came from a big old jar of Apple Butter that the folks over at Musselman’s sent me.
To be honest, I didn’t really know what to do with apple butter.
But I’ll tell you..if anyone asks me now what to do with apple butter, clearly, it’s make a whoopie pie!

For easy filling, put buttercream in a ziplock and snip off the corner.

Squeeze a generous amount of filling on bottom, leaving some space for the squeeze factor…

Roll in sprinkles…if you’re feeling a little crazy 😉

I absolutely love whoopie pies…especially when the filling is rolled in sprinkles like these! It's the best presentation ever. And the print book looks so, so cool! I have a neighbor working on a cookbook and it's always made me think about printing my blog recipes at some point.

I use my blog as a scrap book for my family- and I would love for them to have a hard copy for them to look at when they are older!
(I've only made chocolate whoopie pies- maybe I'll spice it up this year!)

I use apple butter in a sandwich with turkey breast, brie and lettuce. Try it, it's divine.

I did a cookbook a few years ago for my family, but will enter because I think it would be fun to do my blog recipes!

Oh! I'm almost too late…but not quite! Hooray!

I would give a copy to my Dad. I tell him about my Blog all the time, but he pretty much hates the Internets and refuses to try to figure out the whole blog thing.

My husband and his friends took a cross-country trip earlier this year, and blogged the whole thing. I would get the blog printed for him and each person on the trip!

My plan all along has been to turn my blog into a book. I write about our family and how life is now that we have twins! I definitely would keep the book (I'd actually need 2) so that one day I could share and give them to my children. Sort of like the babybook I've never gotten around to doing!
