Has anyone made pumpkin whoopie pies?

I have to bake something for my son's advisory period on Tuesday, and it is supposed to be seasonal. I was thinking that whoopie pies are always a popular treat for HS kids, and I happen to have the first volume of Baked. Their recipe calls for vegetable oil, and I have seen other recipes on the internet that are made with butter. So I am wondering if anyone had made this -- or any other pumpkin whoopie pie recipe and what the results have been. Thanks!
Nope, sorry I cannot help, but that sounds awesome.
P.S.: Whoopie pies are popular on the East Coast. I have not hard of it when I lived in the West Coast and the South.
Hi roxlet, I made "old-fashioned" whoopie pies for a bake sale at my daughter's school recently and they sold out very quickly - very popular right now it seems (also an article about them in the local newspaper about how popular they are). The recipe I found was on All Recipes and I also saw a pumpkin whoopie pie recipe. Here is a link to it:
I didn't make the pumpkin ones but thought this recipe looked tempting. These are made with vegetable shortening.
I've never made pumpkin, but I have to say, I would do as the Baked recipe says. That place is awesome!!
