Fall is not Fall if I don't make pumpkin whoopie pies! My family loves them and so does anyone who tries them! The recipe is requested often. I first tried them at my girlfriend's grandma's house and insisted on the recipe which she gave me. Thank you Niny! Prep time includes making the filling which I usually make while baking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs, brown sugar, and oil together.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. Drop the dough by heaping Tbsp onto greased cookie sheet, spacing about 3 inches apart.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minute.
  4. Cool, then apply filling to one cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich.
  5. I wrap each sandwich individually with plastic wrap.
  6. To make filling, mix in order given.
  7. Makes enough filling for 2 batches of pumpkin whoopy pies.

I gave this 5 stars because it tasted good and doesn't have shortening in it. The cake part didn't puff up like I expected and remained sort of flat. Also, I decided that it's just too labor intensive to do again. In the future, I'll make more of a cake and cut it into individual servings instead. Everyone loved them, though!

I gave this 5 stars. My family loved these whoopie pies. My copy of this recipe is slightly different. My copy calls for 2 egg yolks, 2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup oil, no cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1 1/2 c canned pumpkin, and 4 1/2 cup flour. The rest is the same. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Christine (internetnut)
