Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Whoopie pies are a classic treat here in Lancaster County. Authentic ones are delicious, typically chocolate with a cloud-like white filling.

For those of you who have never had one, the sandwich cookie part is basically like eating cake, soft and fluffy, while the filling is sweet and puffy, sort of like a marshmallow cloud. If done wrong they are bad: dense, dry and tasteless.
