As you probably already guessed, I LOVE Whoopie Pies! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค They are one of my all time favorite things. I also absolutely love fall, and even though it’s still pretty hot out here, when September rolls around, all I can think of is apples, cardigans, cinnamon, and especially pumpkin!!!

  • Pop into the oven and bake at 350ยบ for 15 minutes. The cookies will start to crack a little bit when they’re ready. Let cool completely before icing!
  • Now for the best part! The filling! ๐Ÿ˜€ In a large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add cream cheese and beat until well combined. Add the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla and beat again til smooth. Cover & refrigerate to set up.

Couldn’t help myself. Had to get some of that cream cheese frosting! Tee hee
  • Now time to make the whoopie pies! ๐Ÿ˜€ With a knife or a pastry bag, put a large dollop of the filling on the flat side of the cookies. Then add another cookie on top to make the whoopie pie! Refrigerate if you need them to set up a little more. Bet you can’t eat just one! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜€
