Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Icing

October 8th, 2015 | Recipes

Happy pumpkin season!! As the summer passes and we’re settling back into a more normal routine I find myself spending more time in the kitchen. Since I just got my hands on a new Breville Handy Mix Scraper™ I had to share my newest addiction- Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese Icing. 

Soft and delicious pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese icing

These little fall delights are so soft, they are the perfect cross between cookies and cake… but called a pie!

Breville hand mixer

Pumpkin cookies are really to die for, just the perfect hint of pumpkin. My new Breville Handy Mix Scraper™, comes with 3 sets of beaters- scraper beaters (no more bowl clanking or flower lumps stuck to the bowl) , ballon whisk, and dough hook, and because of the Beater IQ™ feature it knows which beaters you’re using it automatically adjusts to suit what you’re mixing. Giving you the most fluffy Pumpkin Whoopie Pies ever!

Breville mixer has amazing features

This hand held mixer packs a big punch with some really cool features, like a timer and a light! I’m talking a light that shines on the bowl, so you can see what you’re doing… or say if you’re looking for a missing egg shell #thatwouldneverhappen. The count up timer is perfect for those recipes that need precise mixing, resulting in the most delicious recipes.

Soft and delicious pumpkin whoopie pies with cream cheese icing- kid approved!

These little fall morsels are 100% kid approved, they won’t last long!

Since the recipe only calls for 1 cup of pumpkin and there is about triple that amount in a can, you may as well go ahead and double the recipe right away; especially if you have little fingers dipping into the yummy batter!
