How to make it

  • FOR CAKES:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth.
  • Whisk in the eggs, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, 1 teaspoon vanilla, the baking powder, the baking soda and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Using a rubber spatula, fold in the flour.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, drop 12 generous mounds of batter, spaced evenly, onto each baking sheet.
  • Bake until springy to the touch, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  • FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLING:
  • Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, cream the softened butter with the cream cheese.
  • Add the confectioners' sugar and the remaining 2 pinches salt and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
  • Mix on low speed until blended, then beat on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Spread the flat side of 12 cakes with the cream cheese frosting.
  • Top each with another cake.
  • Makes 12 complete whoopie pies.
  • (I double this recipe, usually, because 12 is never enough for my family!)

    Sounds totally awesome! There is a store here that makes regular whoopie pies and they are HUGE. This would be a nice treat for my family.
