What is a Whoopie Pie?
Have you heard of whoopie pies before? They are a dessert made from two super soft cookies with a creamy filling sandwiched in between. There are a variety of variations with the most common being chocolate cookies with vanilla frosting.
Aside from the chocolate variety, the next most popular is the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie, especially during the fall months when pumpkin desserts are so popular. With two super soft pumpkin cookies filled with cinnamon infused cream cheese filling, it’s no wonder that this is one of our favorite fall treats.
How do you make a whoopie pie?
To make a whoopie pie, you will start by making a super soft pumpkin cookie. The key is to make sure you do not over-bake the cookies. You want them to be super soft.
While the cookies bake you will make the cream cheese filling. We infused it with cinnamon to make it extra perfect for fall. You could also add a little maple extract for more of a cinnamon maple filling that would also be really excellent.
While some recipes call for making whoopie pies from a cake mix, it really does not take much longer to make the pumpkin cookies from scratch which is our preference.
From start to finish, plan to spend about 45 minutes to make these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies.
