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

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!
These Pumpkin Pie Cookies are going to be a great addition to our Thanksgiving lineup. I’ll definitely have the
big little kids running for seconds!
