You know it’s getting bone-chillingly wintery when you’re torn about getting a piping hot cup of coffee or answering your ringing phone because you can already feel the chapped beating your hand will get from the frigid air (what a first world problem, right?).

I don’t know about you, but I really wish I could bring back autumn right about now. Seriously, when did it become December?

If you would to try to turn back time a few weeks, these whoopie pies are probably the closest you’ll get. They taste like a crisp fall day, with moist and fluffy spiced cakes filled with sweet and tangy cinnamon cream cheese filling.

You will be transported back to happier, warmer days, I promise.

Whoopie pies are, by definition, little cakey sandwich cookies. But after the filling piped on so beautifully, I couldn’t bring myself to smush them together until the very last second.
