Chocolate Whoopie Pie with Cream Cheese Filling ~ Baking Partners Challenge Nov (Step By Step Pics)

Baking Partners Challenge for November was yet another beautiful bake and I was happy and thrilled to bake these cute sandwich cookies.The recipe was suggested by Swathi &  Anitha @ Anitha's Kitchen Diary and she suggested a pumpkin whooping pie and a chocolaty one.I selected the chocolate whoopie pie as I knew kids would nod a big 'yes' to chocolate and which I wasn't much sure about pumpkin.The chocolate whoopie pies are soft moist dome shaped cookies with a creamy cream cheese frosting.Though the frosting suggested was vanilla but I made the cream cheese one as I had a packet of cream cheese in refrigerator untouched.Do give it a try for your loved one and am sure they would enjoy !!
