Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Also called moon pies, whoopie pies are actually two little cakes sandwiched together with a layer of frosting in the middle. They’re the ideal treat to pack up and take on the road, to a school bake sale, the office, or a party potluck.

Directions

40 min.
1. Step

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices; set aside.

2. Step

In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, eggs, and pumpkin purée. Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Quickly spoon heaping tablespoons of batter onto prepared trays, spacing them inches apart (about 16 per tray).

3. Step

Bake until the cakes spring back when touched and don’t leave a fingerprint, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely, about 2 hours.

4. Step

Mix together 4 tablespoons of butter, the cream cheese, and powdered sugar with a mixer on high speed until very fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Step

Spoon or spread a large dollop of filling mixture onto the flat side of half the cakes and then press together with another cake to make a sandwich.
