Pumpkin Whoopie Pies; It's never too early for pumpkin.


You guys...It may be summer and the beginning of August, but...it is literally NEVER too early for pumpkin. I just made a killer dessert that not only I loved, but my kids devoured!

In this house, we don't often eat dessert that consists of me baking. Popsicles and ice cream are usually our go to dessert here. Let's face it, raising three little kids plus running a doula business where babies come when they want, and with a partner who works an opposite schedule from me, I don't have much time for baking. I used to, though, and that's why my partner requested these pumpkin whoopie pies.

So, we got the kids to bed, I put on Castle Rock (my new favorite Hulu TV show), and I went to town on baking this creation.

It was easy to make and fast to bake, no more than 30 minutes total. I, however, doubled the batch, so it took me a bit longer than normal. I had spent way too much time perusing recipes and none were appealing to me, so I decided to mix and match from what I found online and created this! They are so good. I mean so good. Even without the filling, they make excellent cookies! I cannot wait to hear what you think!

So, without further ado, here is the recipe I used:

INGREDIENTS for cookies

  • 2 cups brown sugar (packed)

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 cups 100% pumpkin puree (I use Libby's)

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp salt
