Happy October!  Since it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, we thought we’d share some Pink Whoopie Pie Cookies today.  They’re easy cookies to make since they start out as a cake mix.  The frosting is a breeze too since you can whip up your own or use a can.  We’re all about easy at Lolly Jane and know most busy bakers are too!
