Pumpkin whoopie pies

October 5, 2012 | 3 Comments »


The first and only time I’ve ever had a whoopie pie was quite a few years ago. On a whim I bought a pack of pumpkin whoopie pies at the Whole Foods in Providence, Rhode Island. I remember them being SO good, but I was never able to find them back home. All of this pumpkin making reminded me of those delicious whoopie pies so I found a recipe online and made some myself. I’m so glad I did because these whoopie pies are awesome!

I used part of this recipe. In fact just the cookie part. I halved the recipe because aside from me and my son no one else here eats pumpkin. So not their month, eh?

For the cream filling I noticed that a lot of the vegan recipes used a cream cheese based filling. I ran out after I made those bagels. So I just whipped up a maple buttercream frosting. Not your typical whoopie pie, but it was still pretty darn good!

One of my favorite places to go hangout is Panera. No, I’m not one of THOSE people (not that there’s anything wrong with those people lol), but they do offer a few vegan options and it’s one of the only places my husband and I can eat at together. One thing that always bums me…
