pumpkin whoopie pies with cinnamon cream cheese filling

December 2, 2011


It’s kind of fun to step outside on a bright and brisk December day and breathe in the sharp air zipping around you. It’s really refreshing…for about three minutes.


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.

So right about the phone thing Bianca, sometimes I pretend that I just can’t hear it ringing so my poor little hands don’t have to face the cold. The woopies look delicious by the way!

Haha thank you! I’m glad at least one person isn’t judging me for my aversion to the cold!

I am so obsessed with anything pumpkin. These look delicious!

Thanks Christina!!! 🙂
