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!

Made these to take to a community gathering after I saw the photo on the home page and had so many compliments and requests for the recipe. It's so easy and great flavors for the season - much differant than the chocolate ones I'm used to. I followed the directions exactly with no changes and loved it. The filling is awesome - can't wait to make these again for my DGSs

This recipe is awesome! The recipe is delicious and comes together quickly. Everyone in my family loved it. My family definetly wants me to make them again. I think I'll add this to our Halloween buffet. I had left over filling (because I made them smaller) and had it on pumpkin bagels the next day.

Just about foolproof..we make these every year, stating at Halloween and on to Christmas! They stay soft and moist, and the extra cream filling is wonderful on cinnamon french toast! MMM!

I made these exactly as the recipe said and they turned out great! We're high altitude and had no issues. I made mine a bit smaller and thinner since I was taking them to a party. I did put the filling in the fridge before putting them together, but next time I'll give it some time to get a little softer before filling them as it was more of a struggle with the cold filling. These were delicious!

This is one of my favorite recipes. I made them for the first time last fall, and all of my friends devoured them. Light, delicious, and simply irresistible. Plus, with far back Amish heritage, I have to love a good whoopie pie!

I made these for Thanksgiving and my family loved them. Very easy to make. I did alter it a little bit because some of my family members don't like cream cheese. I only used 5oz of the cream cheese instead of 8oz. Thanks for a great recipe.
