Pumpkin Whoopie Pie

This time of year I love me some pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin! And once again they say there is a shortage of pumpkins, which I haven't seen yet. But, if you see cans of pumpkin in the store right now, pick up enough to get through the holidays. The last couple of years when they said there was a shortage, as it got closer to Thanksgiving, you couldn't find any cans on some of the shelves at the local store. If your like me, and liking some pumpkin stock up baby!

1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
