Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling- so moist and delicious, you will crave these all year long #pumpkin www.shugarysweets.com

There is no law that says I can’t bake and share pumpkin treats with all of you in January. I shared this recipe back in October over at Carrie’s blog, Bakeaholic Mama.

Then earlier last week I made these again. I always stock up on pumpkin in the fall, you never know when a shortage might hit! I forgot how delicious these were…so I thought I need to share them with all of you.

You’re welcome.

These are great because you don’t need a special donut pan, whoopie pie pan or anything. I put all the filling in a big gallon sized ziploc bag and snipped off the corner. Then I piped a circle (starting in the center) and swirled it around for my desired size. Try making them all the same size so when you match them up they all have an equal sized partner.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Chocolate Cream Cheese Filling

Yield: 12-15

Ingredients

    For the Pumpkin Pies:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 can (15oz) pure pumpkin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3-4 Tbsp heavy cream
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. In large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients for whoopie pies until blended. Fill a large ziploc bag. Snip of corner of bag. Pipe circles of filling, using a spiral rotation, onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet (my circles were about 2 1/2 inch). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove and cool.
  2. When completely cooled, make filling. Beat cream cheese and butter for 3 minutes in mixer. Add powdered sugar, cocoa and heavy cream. Beat an additional 3 minutes until fluffy. Add more cream if necessary. Scoop tablespoons of filling onto one whoopie pie and top it with a matching sized cookie. Add sprinkles if desired. ENJOY.

I’ve recently become obsessed with pumpkin and chocolate together. I have yet to bake pumpkin whoopie pies for my website, but made them one time a couple years ago. And we got the recipe from good ole’ martha too. :) They look wonderful Aimee! I am a sucker for pumpkin!

I’m right there with you – I’ll take pumpkin any time of year – it definitely does NOT need to be limited to October. Particularly when you combine it with chocolate – yum!

I adore chocolate and pumpkin together. It is good to see that pumpkin is acceptable at all time because I made some muffins just a few weeks ago that need shared before next fall :-)

OH goodness! Those whoopie Pies look amazing! I’m a HUGE pumpkin fan, this has been the hardest season not being able to taste all the yummy treats while on this diet.

I’m going to have to save most of the other recipes for when I can try! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

EEEK. Just checked my spam folder and YOU my friend have had all your comments the past two weeks in there. So sorry :( I’ve unspammed you. Not sure why that happened (I know Jocelyn had it happen to her before and she had to contact Akismet)!

You had me at pumpkin – or was it chocolate? I think it was cream cheese actually :) I wanted to let you know that I featured this today in my “What I Bookmarked This Week” post – stop by and see.

For two weeks I’ve been wanting to bake something with pumpkin and cream cheese, but everyone else wanted chocolate. Guess what I’m doing today!!!
