Pumpkin Whoopie Pies....Foodie Friday...

Please visit our hostess designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ for more delicious seasonal recipes.


To continue on my post from yesterday I wanted to share with you what I baked for the witches All Hollow Eve tea party.

PUMPKIN WHOOPIE PIES

I was looking for a new pumpkin recipe and came across one at Martha Stewart. I wanted to share the recipe this week so that you can bake these moist and tasty treats for Halloween. Matt Lewis was a guest on Martha's show. Matt is one of the owners of Baked Bakery in Brooklyn and also in Charleston, S.C. Please visit Martha Stewart HERE to find the printed recipe along with a step by step video in two parts.

The recipe calls for making 12 whoopie pies. I opted to make them smaller as they are very rich. Do not hold back on the amount of spices the recipe calls for. It sounds like a lot of spice but honestly these little cookies really punch your taste buds with tons of pumpkin flavor. The texture is moist and a cross between a cake and a muffin. It is important for you to leave the finished cookies in the fridge for a few hours so that the flavors can meld together. They even had a bit more flavor the next day. After that I can't say because these little pumpkin whoopie pies never made it past a day in a half at our house.

MANGIA!

*Oh, instead of the witches giving these two thumbs up they gave these two warts up*

  11. Hello Joyce, you are busy baking and having some Halloween fun. Love it! I am having trouble finding pumpkin in the grocery stores. I heard there was a shortage of pumpkin. I would hate that. You can't go wrong with Martha Stewart. They looks yummy.

    Happy autumn.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  12. MMMMM...they look so good ans nice and portable for kids.

    I went over to Baked once and the line was long (and prices so high) that I probably won't go back. I would like a cookbook of their recipes though!

  13. Whoopie pies are a classic Amish baked good. Every farmers market I've went to has whoopie pies. I like the pumpkin the best. Chocolate with peanut butter icing is my second best. I always purchase a couple. One to eat immediately and one to bring home to DH.

  17. I'm definately going to try your pumpkin whoopies, they sound great! As for the hummus, I think you could get away with freezing it for 2-4 weeks as least. Mary @ Boogieboard Cottage :O)

  21. I'm hear to vouch for the tastyness of Joyce's Whoopie Pies.....you will think you died and went to pumpkin heaven....they are fabulous and I would know I think I gained a few pounds eating them....and Joyce..does that adorable monkey have a name?

  22. Oh Joyce, I LOVE anything with pumpkin in it, and these look fabulous! so far I'm only a pumpkin pie, mousse, and soup maker.... but I think I will add Whoopie Pies to my repertoire.

    Thanks for your kind words about the Memory Walk. As you know, it's a terrible thing to watch someone with AD fade away. Blessings to you -- Cass

  23. Hi Joyce, I am so glad you made these, they were my second choice after the Nilla Wafers. Since it's only Sis and I here to eat them I decided they were too dangerous for our diets. I am going to make them for my Thanksgiving trip to Douglasville though, then I'll have lots of family to help me devour them.

    The recipe in the book is very similar to the one on MS, but I'm with you on the more spices issue and will be using those measurements. More spices — it's a good thing. Thanks for the tip.

    BTW, I love that sock monkey witch!
