Ingredients
Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies
  • 1 box Purely Simple White Cake Mix
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Pour cake mix and pumpkin pie spice into a large bowl and stir. Add melted butter, egg, vanilla, and pumpkin puree. Mix until combined (dough will be thick).
  3. Drop cookies by rounded Tablespoons onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (for a smooth cookie surface when baked, make sure the cookie dough balls are smooth on top before placing in the oven).
  4. Bake for about 12-13 minutes, or until cookies look set (barely golden brown, and do not look doughy in the centers). Whoopie pies are traditionally a soft-baked cookie with a cake-like texture, thus you don't want to over bake them.
  5. Allow cookies to cool completely.
  6. Cream butter and cream cheese together, until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Add in vanilla and cinnamon. Mix. Add in powdered sugar, and mix until well combined.
  7. With a spoon or a piping bag with a circular tip, add about 1 Tbsp (more or less, depending upon your preference) of filling to half of the cookies. Top with the other halves.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. For best results, store leftovers in the fridge.
