Pumpkin bread, spice muffins, maple scones, apple cakes, I've made them all. But I ventured to try something new this week: Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies.
Wilton's recipe and tools were delicious.
Harvest Whoopie Pie pan and a variety of embellishments like sprinkles, melting chocolates and sanding sugars to create some delicious treats.
Wilton's Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies are light and reminiscent of a pumpkin bread sandwiching a cream cheese filling. The Harvest Whoopie Pie pan and its pumpkin and leaf shapes makes the dessert even more special.
PUMPKIN SPICE WHOOPIE PIES (makes 15)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspooon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup solid pack pumpkin
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon clear vanilla extract
Instructions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray the pan with vegetable oil (I recommend flouring the pan too, to prevent sticking). In a medium bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cloves. In large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar with electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with pumpkin and buttermilk, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Fill pan 1/2 full, spreading batter to edges of cavities.
Wilton's Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies are a delicious way to add some variety into your fall baking. I can definitely see using the pan for other fall treats like cookies and shortbread.
