Whoopie Pies

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the brown sugar, oil, pumpkin, egg, and vanilla until well combined.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon, drop evenly sized scoops of batter onto the prepared cookie sheets 2 inches apart each, making 16 scoops total.
  • Bake 10-15 minutes, until the cakes are springy. Let cool completely.

Filling

  • Beat cream cheese, butter, and salt until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract and continue beating until smooth. Chill filling until it holds its shape, about 30 minutes.
  • Spread one tablespoon of filling onto the flat side of one cookie, top with another cookie. Repeat until you have 8 whoopie pies.
