Drop by heaping measuring teaspoons onto prepared baking sheets. (A total of 72 cookies are needed for the recipe.)

Thanks for the great recipe! I used 1 1/2 cup of pumpkin since I usually add extra to all of my pumpkin cakes. I also added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. The texture was not as runny as some of the other reviews indicated. I used a tablespoon melon baller to drop onto a greased cookie sheet and baked for 12 minutes. They were a bit taller than I prefer, but tasted scrumptious! For the filling, I increased the cream cheese to 8oz., used 1 tsp vanilla, reduced powdered sugar to 1 cup, and 6Tbs of butter. I recommend reducing butter to 4 Tbs since the outcome was overly buttery. Be sure to refrigerate for at least an hour before indulging as they filling needs time to meld with the cake. Overall, these were very yummy and I will make again!

I made these for Thanksgiving and they were fantastic. I made them the day before and covered with plastic wrap, and I think they were even more moist because of this. Also, I used a shortening-based traditional filling that I found on another whoopie pie recipe here, because I did not have room in my refrigerator to keep these cold overnight, and I was more than happy with the combination. Also, when I was about half way through, I put the batter in a plastic bag with the tip cut off, and I found that was easier to get them a uniform size. Although, its no big deal if they are not that uniform - I found that I could put together two that were next to each other, because even though my sizes were varied, they were pretty close if they were next to each other. (hope that makes sense) I'm not an experienced baker by any means, and these were very easy for me and made a great impression on my guests. I will make these again.


I altered the recipe a little: I only used 1/4 cup butter in the cookie dough, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice instead of ginger. For the filling, I used 4 Tbsp butter instead of 6. I'm not sure how they would have turned out if I hadn't cut out some of the butter and sugar, but they turned out delicious the way I made them. They're best when they've been sitting in the refrigerator for a few hours and the filling has become even creamier. A great snack for school and work lunches!
