The Cult Of Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
I think it's safe to say that the pumpkin whoopie pies from Pecan Meadow Farms, available at the 14th and U farmers market, now have a cult following.
And for good reason. The sweets start with pumpkins grown on the farm — no canned stuff here. They're made with Pecan Meadow's free-range eggs (also delicious on their own) and are filled with fluffy sweet cream cheese icing.
Mentions of the pies regularly show up on my Twitter feed, and I've even overheard people talking about them over brunch at Saint-Ex. Get to the market each Saturday early to get 'em before they're gone.
Lucky for me, I have some wonderful friends who make sure that if I miss the market, I don't miss the whoopie pies. In fact, two just showed up at my door.
Pardon me, I have a whoopie pie to eat...
