Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Adapted from Chaos Served Daily


(for batter)
1 1/2 sticks of melted butter
1 cup of packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbs of pumpkin pie spice
1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsps of vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 2/3 cups flour (all purpose)

(for filling)
1/2 stick of softened butter
4 oz of cream cheese
2 cups of powered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. Line your cookie sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  3. In a large bowl you’re going to start making the batter.  Mix melted butter with brown sugar until smooth.  Now whisk in the eggs, pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla and salt.  Then add the flour and mix until there are no lumps.
  4. Spoon the batter onto your baking sheet, I used pretty big spoonfuls for large cookies but it’s up to you depending on what size whoopie pies you prefer.
  5. Bake for 10-14 minutes (this will depend on the your oven/size cookie you’re making).  Cookie should be springy to the touch and then move to a wire cookie rack right away to finish cooling.
  6. Let cookies cool completely.
  7. In another large bowl you’re going to start making the filling.  Cream the softened butter and the cream cheese together.  Now add the powdered sugar at a low speed on your mixer, mixing one cup at a time and then add the vanilla.  Once mixed, continue mixing on high for about 2 minutes until light and fluffy.
  8. Then add the filling to your whoopie pies making a ‘sandwich’ out of them.  After making them, I like to keep them in the fridge for a bit.  I also store any uneaten whoppie pies in the fridge due to the cream cheese in the filling.
