Makes: 12 servings Total Time: 45 min
Category: Cookies Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, 1 stick melted other 1/2 stick softened, divided
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup canned pure pumpkin pureed
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon plus 2 pinches salt, divided
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, chilled
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
make it
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In large bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, 1 teaspoon vanilla, baking powder, 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.

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 extract; mix on low speed until blended. Then beat on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Spread the flat side of 12 cakes (cookies) with the cream cheese frosting. Top each with another cake (cookie).
Notes
You could mix and match this recipe with several cake (cookie) and frosting choices.

Another awesome variation to this recipe would be roll cookie sandwiches in walnuts or your favorite nut.

Rated  by healthychicky on 12/14/2010 SO Yummy!! I have never made whoopie pies before and this recipe was very simple, perfect for a beginner. It is a little time consuming but very worth it! Using a small ice scroop helps so much. Didn't use ginger at all because I don't like it. So moist and cream is so delicious, perfect for the fall and holidays!
