Sweet Potato Whoopie Pies courtesy of my sweetie!

This recipe is especially sweet.  My cousin Brooke had a “potato party” at her new apartment.  Everyone was suppose to bring their favorite potato recipe and she would provide meat and salad.  Well…of course, I started thinking about desserts that I could incorporate a potato into.  I created this recipe just for the special occasion.  However, the day of the party, I fell really sick and couldn’t bake.  My sweet hubby stepped in and said he’d make the whoopie pies for me.  I gave him this recipe and my camera and said go for it.  He baked these guys and then snapped this picture for my blog.  This proves two things: 1. I have the sweetest husband in the world and 2. If my man can make these while taking care of two toddlers and a sick wife, then anyone can. 
I sampled one once I felt a little better and let me tell you…they’re really good!  They flavor is very cinnamony and not at all potatoy…simply yummy!  Love you babe!
And since he made them, I thought we needed a picture of him.  Sweet Andrew, the chef!
