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 😉

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    I love this idea! I would keep it for posterity, and share it with my kids. When they want to tease me, they'll have lots of ammo!

  2. Jenna

    My friend used Blog2Print and it turned out beautifully! I would print my little family blog and keep it for when my daughter gets older.

  3. Reeni

    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!

  4. Jackie

    This is a hard decision but I don't think I could part with it! My blog is about food, the parties I throw for my son and helpful information I find along the way of being a new mommy. I think it's definitly a keeper!

  5. Erika Beth, the Messy Chef

    I love making whoopie pies (but I've only made them once as well.) if I made a blog book I would give it to my mom seeing a lot of my recipes are hers. 🙂

  6. Couscous & Consciousness

    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 is that even after nearly 55 years I'm still his little girl 🙂

    I would love to print my blog and keep it as a journal. I have been posting all about my son (who is now 10 months old) and it would be a great way to remember all his accomplishments!

  8. Kristie Maynard

    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!

    This is an interesting concept.. i don't know if I'd want to turn my blog into a book, but it's nice to have that option open.

  10. Linda V @ Bubble and Sweet

    I think I'd give it to my mum who doesn't really know how to use the computer but is my inspiration in everything I do.

  11. Melissa

    I would love to be able to make a book out of my blog. I recently started my blog (melissabakes.com) but I've been posting a lot. I love your blog and those whoopie pies look awesome!

  12. Erin O.

    Those are so yummy looking! I really love the sprinkles too, they're so pretty.

    I would love a book of my blog! It would be nice to have for when I'm older and I can show my kids what my blog looked like and have all the recipes on hand too.

  13. Jenn @ BentoForKidlet

    Delicious looking whoopie pies!! 😀

    I think I would certainly carry my book around to show everyone my hard work 😉 that wouldn't be too annoying right? 😀

  14. Joanne

    Cute desserts definitely for sure make the world go round. I made my first whoopie pies earlier this year and totally fell in love. Now I totally need try these fall flavor-infused ones.

  15. Diane {Created by Diane}

    Your whoopie pies look great!
    I'd love a copy of my blog in print for reference and to pass down to my kids when they start being more adventurous in the kitchen, what a great idea.

  16. keepitsweet

    what a great idea to make a book! i'd probably keep it for myself, though i should give it to someone else… maybe i'd need a few:-) love apple butter and love the idea of using it ot bake!

  17. Donna

    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.

  18. Juliet Grace

    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.

  19. Tegan Aubrie

    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!

    tegan{dot}mauldin{at}gmail{dot}com

    P.S. I make your cake cookies ALL. THE. TIME. They are awesome. 🙂

  20. Sue

    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.
