SnackLove: Pumpkin Spiced Whoopie Pies with Maple Buttercream Filling. Yum.


3 c. AP flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3 c. granulated white sugar
2 sticks butter
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients, whisk to incorporate. Beat butter and add sugar. Add eggs, continue to beat for a minute to combine. Add pumpkin and vanilla. Mix gently. Add dry ingredients, stir gently together. Chill in fridge for 1-3 hours. Use ice-cream scoop to scoop onto parchment lined pans. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven.

Maple Buttercream filling:
2 sticks room temp butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup real maple syrup- Grade B has more flavor for cooking/baking uses, but Grade A was all I had! You could also use extract, but I like to buy from my local farms.
Beat all together until mixed and continue to beat until light and fluffy.

Pick cookies that match and spread about 1/4 cup of filling onto the bottom of one. Then top it with it's mate and enjoy! Happy Harvest, everyone!
