Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Who doesn't love a Whoopie Pie? These are delicious and just scream fall!

You will need:
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups solid pack pumpkin puree
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 tablespoon ground cloves

For the filling:
1 egg white
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners sugar
3/4 cup shortening

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease baking sheet.
  2. Combine the oil and brown sugar. Stir in the pumpkin and eggs, mix well. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Mix well.
  3. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the baking sheets. (I use my cookie scoop to keep them all the same size.) Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool.
  4. To prepare the filling, Beat the egg white and combine with the milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup of the confectioners sugar. Mix well and then beat in the shortening and remaining cup of confectioners sugar. Beat until fluffy.
  5. When the cookies are completely cool, fill them with the filling. Enjoy!

  4. These look wonderful! I always see the chocolate ones and for whatever reason they have no appeal for me even though I like chocolate. I have a PTA potluck coming up with a pumpkin theme, might make these, thanks for the recipe!
