pumpkin whoopee pies with dulce de leche filling

It’s Thanksgiving week here, so I guess it’s about time I make some pumpkin treats. Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Dulce de Leche Filling sound like a good place to start. Whoopee pies are actually little cakes sandwiched with frosting…that explains why I like them so dang much. These pumpkin cakelettes are very moist, appropriately spiced and studded with cranberries. The recipe calls for fresh cranberries, but I’d already used up my bag making sauce for Thursday’s dinner. I plumped up some dried ones instead, and they worked just fine. Dorie says you can bake the whoops off in a muffin tin for uniform shape, but I chose to go freeform because I didn’t want them looking too much like muffins. I used a cookie scoop to get clean, round potions, and they baked up evenly enough for me to match them up well. The filling for these whoopie pies is supposed to be marshmallow fluff mixed with dulce de leche. Cream cheese frosting is also a natural match. I had this little bit of buttercream in the freezer, and since I’m on a tear to use up the odds and ends in my fridge, I mixed that with DDL and went with it. Delicious.

  1. These look like all kinds of wonderful!

  2. So, if you use a cookie scoop and bake them freeform they turn out like this? The (mini) muffin tin certainly didn’t work for me!

  3. We loved these too. I also made them free form and it worked just fine. I would love to make these again.

  4. These look so light and fluffy! I am not huge on pumpkin-flavored things myself (usually too sweet for me), but it is definitely the season! 🙂
