Because I'm Hungry

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies


  • Cookies:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  1. For cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease or line four baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in large mixer bowl on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add pumpkin and vanilla extract; beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture until combined. Drop by heaping measuring teaspoons onto prepared baking sheets. (A total of 72 cookies are needed for the recipe.)
  3. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until springy to the touch. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For cream cheese filling: Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Spread a heaping teaspoon of filling onto flat side of one cookie; top with flat side of second cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling. Store in covered container in refrigerator.

These are UH-MAZING! I made them for work last week and they were gone in seconds and everyone was asking for the recipe. Super easy, extremely delicious and kids love them!
They are so great I'm making them this Saturday for a pig roast I'm attending.

Seriously! Try them! Now!
I promise you won't be disappointed!
