More About This Recipe

  • Now this is the kind of whoopie you should be making! These Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are moist pillowy cakes packed with spices and filled with cream cheese frosting. To be honest I've never been a huge fan of whoopie pies, but these won me over with their soft texture and comforting fall taste . And you know they're good when your husband keeps sneaking into the fridge to snag one. These could not be easier. Just start with a doctored spice cake mix with some canned pumpkin mixed in. I added some pumpkin pie spice to boot because I personally like when the pumpkin flavor punches you in the face and doesn’t just tickle your back. Usually I wouldn't encourage you to be meticulous in making sure these are all the same size but, since we're sandwiching these babies together in the end, it's important to make sure they all have a match. Using a cookie scoop is an easy way to make sure they're all uniform in size. Once they've cooled, lather them with a generous dollop of cream cheese frosting. Then top with a second cookie.
