For some reason I can’t say the name of these pies to save my life. I’ve called them all sorts of things but rarely Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. I’ve called them cushions, mangled whoopie, mangled pumpkin, mangled pies. I can not say the name of these treats to save my frickin life. It’s wack.
But what is equally wack is how good they are. I saw them on Serious Eats and had to make them for Halloween. The recipe is at the link. I was very surprised at how easy these were to make. I think next time I’ll try to find a less sweet filling, maybe I’ll use honey and cream cheese. Maybe dark chocolate something. Whatever it is, I’ll be making them again.

My favorite tool for stuff like this?
This scoop is the perfect size for a two/three bit whoopie pie. I don’t think I’d want to make them smaller. The scoop also make scooping the neat option for this recipe. I ♥ my scoop.
Here are some pre-oven raw whoopies on thier little sheet of baking wonderment, parchment paper:
And now in their post-ovenness:
Here is a whole bunch of them!
And the filling:
And now for the completed whoopies!
