How have I not made Pumpkin Whoopie Pies before? People! Why didn’t you say something?!?!?! I am the Whoopie Pie Queen with a mad obsession for pumpkin…the fact that this didn’t occur to me is ridiculous.
I have rectified the situation and made these yummy treats just for you (and me…I ate like 4 of them) just in time for fall. Not only are these little guys simple, they are yummy enough to be served instead of traditional pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving. I used a yellow cake mix in this recipe but if you really want them to taste like fall, you should use a spice cake mix instead :). Trust me…you will love these little whoopie pies!
1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup veggie oil
1 cup of canned pumpkin (I used Libby’s)
Cream cheese frosting
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and pumpkin in bowl.
Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)
Bake 9 to 10 minutes
Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes
Stir cinnamon into your store bought cream cheese frosting.
Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of frosting in the center. Press another cookie on top (this will spread the icing out to the edge). Repeat.
These were just ridiculously good. I’m talking the best thing you’ll ever eat so you might as well double the recipe good.
And next time, email me if I forget to make something as fabulous as this ;).
