melissa's pick...

{pumpkin spice whoopies}

My pick is pumpkin whoopie pies! 
Yummy Yummm! 
Two of my favorite things pumpkin and whoopie.
It's not gluten free, but if you sub cake mix with a GF version special gluten free kids can enjoy too!  I like ‘Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix’… available at whole foods, sprouts and most grocers. 

Makes: 15 servings
Prep time: 35 mins
Bake 375°F (15 mins per batch)
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package 2-layer-size spice cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 recipe Marshmallow-Spice Filling

1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil (grease foil, if using). In a large mixing bowl beat pumpkin and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add cake mix, eggs, and milk; beat on low speed until combined, and then on medium speed for 1 minute.
2. By the heaping tablespoon, drop mounds of batter 3 inches apart on cookie sheet; keep remaining batter chilled. Bake 15 minutes or until set and lightly browned around edges. Carefully remove from parchment or foil; cool on wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, lining cooled cookie sheets each time with new parchment or foil. If desired, place cookies in a covered storage container with waxed paper between layers to prevent sticking. Store cookies at room temperature for 24 hours. Prepare Marshmallow-Spice Filling up to 2 hours before serving. Spread about 2-1/2 tablespoons filling on flat side of one cookie; top with a second cookie. Repeat. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 2 hours. Makes 15 whoopies.
Marshmallow-Spice Filling
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 8 ounce package softened cream cheese
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 7 ounce jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1. Up to 2 hours before serving, beat together butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add powdered sugar, marshmallow cream, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Beat until well combined.
