Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Cream Cheese Filling  

Ingredients:

Whoopie Pies:

3 cups pumpkin purée

1 cup vegetable oil

1 and 3/4 cups brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 cloves

Pinch of salt

 

Maple cream cheese filling:

3 cups sifted powdered sugar

1 cup cream cheese

1/2 cup vegetable shortening or butter

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or baking liners.

  1. Whisk all dry ingredients in a bowl together and set aside.
  2. Whisk sugars and oil together then add eggs. Next whisk in vanilla and then pumpkin.
  3. Add dry to wet and fold to combine.
  4. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop out batter onto lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until top bounces back when touched lightly.
  5. To create filling, use a hand mixer to combine cream cheese and shortening. Add sifted powdered sugar and continue mixing. Add maple syrup and vanilla. Once everything is cohesive, set aside.
  6. Once whoopies have cooled, turn half of the cooled whoopie upside down. Spoon the filling onto that half. Place another cookie, flat side down, on top of the filling. Press down slightly.

* If you like, roll the sides in something fun like crushed grahams, chocolate chips, or sprinkles. Chill whoopies after for two minutes to allow them to set. Enjoy!
