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
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,
