Pumpkin Whoopee Pies

adapted from sarahlipoff.com

Makes about 20 pies

Ingredients for the cookie part:

1 1/2 c Pumpkin Pie Filling or Puree

2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp ground Ginger

1 whole egg

1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil

1 cup packed Brown Sugar

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

Pinch of Salt

1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

2 cups all-purpose flour

Ingredients for the filling:

8 oz Mascarpone Cheese

1/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1/2 tsp Vanilla

1/4 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Mix the pumpkin, syrup, vanilla, ginger, egg, oil, and brown sugar in a big bow and whisk until everything is smooth and incorporated.

Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour and mix together.

Heat oven to 350F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper (or grease the pans lightly). Β Spoon on batter in 2″ rounds.

Place in the oven and bake for about 14 minutes. Β When they turn a bit brown and crack a little, they’re done!

Let them cool completely before filling!!!

Using a knife or pastry bag and swirl on some filling. Β Top with another cookie. If the filling seems a little gooey, place pies in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to stiffen the filling.
