 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…
