Pumkpin Spice Whoopie Pies....

with Orange Cream Cheese Filling.

I saw these over at Confessions Of A Cookbook Queen and knew I had to make them as soon as possible. As luck would have it, my sister in law had everyone over for a cook out a couple weekends ago. Perfect excuse! It is an unspoken commitment now that I bring dessert to family functions, much to their delight. My brother and law said these were his favorite of the cookies I've made.
My ONLY issue with the recipe is that my filling seemed a bit runny. When I make them again, Ill have to figure out how to fix that. If you make them, let me know how yours came out!
Now go hunt down some pumpkin and make these yourself!

1/2 can of pumpkin
1/3 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1 package spice cake mix
1/2 cup milk
Parchment paper
Orange food coloring  

(adapted from allrecipes.com)
6 oz cream cheese, softened
4 Tablespoons butter, softened
5 Tablespoons orange juice
5 cups powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375.  In a large bowl, beat the pumpkin and butter on medium speed until smooth. Add cake mix, eggs, and milk and beat on low until combined, about one minute.

2. Spoon batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet, about 3 inches apart.
Bake until edges are lightly browned (about 15 minutes).

3. Cool 1 minute in pans then move to racks to finish cooling.

4. Beat cream cheese, butter, food coloring and orange juice until creamy. Slowly beat in powdered sugar and beat on high for 2 minutes.

5. Spread filling on flat sides of cookies and press together.

  1. Oooh, yum!! I think I will have to try these sometime!

  2. *sigh* So much for losing weight this Fall!! You've done it again. LOVE!

  3. We sell these at my work, never thought of making them at home...bet it would taste better too!!

  4. scrumptious! I still have a whoopie pie recipe that an Amish friend gave to me when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. I still haven't attempted the recipe as the ingredients list is LONG - really really long! Yours look wonderful and I love that they are PUMPKIN inspired! -diane

  5. I think I'll make the cookies without the filling - can't stand cream cheese.

  6. This may sound stupid...but is the 1/2 can of pumpkin, the small or large can? I really want to try these this weekend.

  7. I used half of the smaller (15oz) can =)

  8. Hey there! :)

    I just started a weekly baking meme if you'd like to add it to mine. This would be perfect and looks delicious!! :)


  9. An orange cream cheese filling, now that's one that I haven't seen yet. Paired up with those chocolate sprinkles I think it would be lip smacking good. I'm also linked up with the Goober Monkey Bakes.


  10. This looks so yummy! Oh my goodness, I want to make these right now!!!
