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've seen people do that before(transform their blog to a book), and you make it sound so easy! I'll definitely check out that site!(I thought you were going to give a copy of yours away:) That would be a prize!) I think I would keep mine, but I'd love to turn my kids' blogs into books for them…maybe Christmas:)
Love your whoopie pies! I've never made them either, unless you count my macarons that end up looking like whoopie pies.

I have a private blog I keep for my son, filled with letters to him "Love, Mom". I definitely want to turn that into a book someday!

I have a blog for the daily events of my preemie daughter who is still in the NICU at 4 1/2 months old. She is quite a little fighter – full of determination and spirit. I would print her blog as a keepsake for when she's a teenager, I can show her everything she had to overcome to get here and why I now have a lot of gray hairs! 😉 Thanks for the great giveaway.

I have estranged from my oldest daughter for ten years because of Parental Alienation. I have two grandchildren that I can only love from a distance. I would publish my blog to save for them to get to know their Nana by.

My blog is a crafting blog and I would probably keep it for myself, put it out on the coffee table when people are over, just to let them know what they are missing if they don't follow my blog and maybe use it as a reference of the things I have posted in the past.
I think this is a wonderful prize, thanks to you and Blog2Print!

I would definitely give my blog book as a gift to my Dad – in that wonderful way that only parents can be, he loves my blog, reads every single word of every post (undoubtedly my biggest fan), even though by his own admission he would never cook anything I make – he's still a "steak grilled until it resembles shoe leather and accompany with three vegetables that have been microwaved to within an inch of their lives" kind of guy. Somethings you just can't change – one of those is that our culinary tastes differ rather dramatically, the other… Read more »

I love your apple butter whoopie pies! They're the first of their kind. I bet your book is gorgeous with all your baked goods! It would be neat to have a book of my blog – something tangible to see all the hard work I've done!

I made apple butter and also am not sure what else to do with it besides eat it on biscuits! I love this idea for using it in a whoopie pie. If I won this Blog2Print Giveaway I would give it to my grandma…she loves to cook and doesn't follow my blog so I think she would love it!

Monica H

These are fun! I just bought a jar of cranberry apple butter….bet that would be tasty!

Because my personal and cooking blogs are still a work in progress, I'd print my photo blog into a book, since it's only a one year project.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I love your whoopie pies, totally fall flavored. Bad time to buy a diet book…lol

If I had my blog turned into a book, I would keep it for myself to enjoy and then later give to my daughter, as I have been learning my family's recipes. Then she would be able to have them in a book when she gets older:) That would really be great.

I would absolutely love to turn my mother's blog into a book I can share with my own children someday. Precious.
