Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

  • Food

It seems like pumpkins are everywhere I turn these days. There are pumpkins to be carved and pumpkins to be baked and pumpkins to be turned into delicious treats. I wanted a fun and easy dessert to go with our turkey dinner last Sunday so I made Pumpkin Whoopie Pies.

They were awesome. I used a recipe I found on Home: Made Simple and the only thing I changed was to double it. I think I wound up with about 24 whoopie pies.

The cream cheese frosting is delicious and the cake is light and flavorful and everyone really loved them.

While I believe that traditional Whoopie Pies made with chocolate cake and buttercream frosting are still the best thing going, I will definitely be making these pumpkin ones again!

  1. O.K. this is scary. Last week I had bookmarked this recipe while planning what to bring to our annual UCONN tailgate. Never did get to make them as I was a bit tight on time. Now I Must make them! I think I’ll bring them to Vermont when we go to visit friends in a couple of weeks. My mother-in-law made the best traditional whoopie pies!!

  2. Wow! One of our knitting friends brought the exact same thing to our
    knitting group Tuesday! Yummmmmmy!!!

  3. Yum! Yum! Yum! I definitely have to make those! You know, I think whoopie pies are a regional thing. I’ve never seen them down here.

  4. Seriously? Why do you do this to us?! Now we are all going to have to make them and then eat them and that doesn’t help me drop any weight!

  5. Thanks. I now need a new keyboard because my current one is filled up with droooooollllll!!!!

    What a yummy looking photograph!

  6. One of my friends just posted the recipe to facebook yesterday, right as DD and I were pulling a pumpkin custard out of the oven. Autumn is here! I’ll have to figure out a good non-gluten version.

  7. Whoopie pies are one of my favorites! Many of the local bakeries around here make them. In addition to the standard chocolate with a white icing, there are pumpkin, red velvet & chocolate with peanut butter icing. πŸ™‚

    Yours look delicious!

  8. I will have to make pumpkin whoopie pies soon. As soon as we are finished with the red velvet mini-cupcakes and brownies I made over the weekend.
