Pumpkin Whoopie Pies: Secret Recipe Club

By September 19, 2011Baking, Cookies, Fall Favorites, Whoopie Pies

It’s time for another fun day with Secret Recipe Club! I can hardly believe this is my 4th month already, how time flies when you are having fun! I was so excited to be given Big Fat Baker this month as my secret blogger. Baking me? Well…of course…perfect right?

I quickly headed over and started searching Erin’s blog for the perfect recipe, the Blueberry Pie looked amazing, and the Almond Joy Cupcakes were definitely high on the list, but I figured I already share enough cupcakes around here and I didn’t want you to get tired of them.

I finally stumbled upon these amazing Pumpkin Whoopie Pies! Perfect!! With Fall upon us, and the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon in the air, I just had to give them a try. And guess what? They start with a cake mix, you all know I love quick and easy!!

I did change the recipe a bit by adding a little Pumpkin Pie Spice to some, chopped nuts to a few others and because this will be Apple Daze all week long here as I share some yummy Apple Recipes with you, I added a handful of chopped apples to some.

The filling…an amazing Cream Cheese Caramel Frosting, is a perfect addition. Watch tomorrow for another recipe with this delicious frosting.

I was so surprised to see that Erin is from Indiana, I’m not sure where, her Twitter page just says Indiana. But I will be sure to find out now. And thanks to our Secret Recipe Club host this month, Tina from Moms Crazy Cooking.
