Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

And so my love affair with pumpkin continues. I found this recipe in an issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. The cream filling of these little guys is SOO delicious.


1 1/2 sticks butter, 1 stick melted, 1/2 stick softened

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup pumpkin puree

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 pinches salt

1 2/3 cups flour

1/2 block cream cheese, chilled

1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.

In large bowl, whisk together brown sugar and melted butter.  Whisk in eggs, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin, 1 tsp vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Fold in flour.

Drop 12 generous tbsp. of batter on each cookie sheet. Bake 10 mins. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, using mixer, cream together softened butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar and remaining vanilla. Beat until fluffy, about 2 mins.

Spread the flat side of 12 cakes with frosting. Top with another cake.
