How to make Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

To make the Cakes:

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Using a parchment paper, line 2 cookie sheets.

Step 3: Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a medium bowl.

Step 4: Combine using a whisk and set aside.

Step 5: Add the brown sugar and oil in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth.

Step 6: Add in the egg a piece at a time, mixing every after each addition until combined and smooth.

Step 7: Add in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. Mix well.

Step 8: Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated and smooth.

Step 9: Scoop some of the batters with a medium ice cream scooper. Place each scoop leaving about 2 inches between the batter on the prepared cookie sheet.

Step 10: Place inside the oven and bake for about 11 minutes.

Step 11: Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool completely.

To make the filling:

Step 12: In a standing mixer, mix the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream until incorporated and creamy.

Step 13: Transfer the filling into the piping bag. Set aside.

Step 14: Match the whoopie pies and line them up in the bottoms of the cookie sheets.

Step 15: On the bottom of the whoopie pies, pipe a dollop of frosting.

Step 16: On the frosting, place the top whoopie pie, slightly pressing down.

Step 17: Serve and enjoy with a large glass of milk.
