Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
Pumpkin and frosting, a perfect match. Amy Spiro
Celebrate fall with these fun, kid-friendly cookies.
If you've been hanging around here at The Nosh Pit very long, you'll already know that I love pumpkin. I've shared recipes for cupcakes, muffins, bread, mini pies and evensnickerdoodles all flavored with the delicious gourd. And now that we're deep into fall and almost coming up on Thanksgiving, pumpkin is the flavor of the season.
Whoopie pies are two cake-like cookies sandwiched together with frosting. In this case, the pumpkin and cinnamon flavors in the cookie pair perfectly with the smooth cream cheese frosting. They're a perfect handheld treat and they're a fun individual alternative to cupcakes - plus, who can resist the name?
