These are marvelous cookies! I love the pumpkin flavor and rich-but not overly sweet-filling. I made these small and used them as Pumpkin Pasties for a Harry Potter party. They were a huge hit! I did find that they needed to bake for seventeen minutes, however - at fifteen, they were sticky when cooled.
These are so yummy. I left them in the oven a few minutes more like another poster suggested, and the cakes fluffed up perfectly. The filling is delicious. I expect these to be a big hit at the party. Thank you so much!
Amazing! My family loves Whoopie Pies and I've tried to replicate them in the past but I've never tried pumpkin before! This was a great recipe. I opted to make mine smaller and I also used Betty Crocker's whipped vanilla icing as the filling. I added the cinnamon and nutmeg to the icing and chilled it for a bit before spreading it on the pies. This is a true fall winner!
