Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Mini Cookies
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup Splenda-sugar mix
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 can pumpkin (again should be 15 oz)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Cream Cheese WHOOPIE filling
  • 4 oz 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  1. Starting with the mini cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease 4 sheets of parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt
  3. In another bowl, mix butter and sugar and beat on high speed for 2 minutes
  4. While beating the mixture, slowly add egg substitute
  5. Add pumpkin and vanilla extract to the egg mixture and beat until smooth
  6. Slowly add flour mixture while stirring to create a gooey-ooey batter
  7. Use a teaspoon to collect one scoop of the batter and place it on the parchment paper (this should yield around 72)
  8. Bake the mini cookies for 12 minutes (they look like scones when done)
  9. For the WHOOOOOPIE filling, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla in a small bowl
  10. Gradually add the powdered sugar while beating the mixture at a slow speed
  11. Once the cookies are done baking and cooled, place a small spoonful of whoopie mixture on the flat side of a cookie and place another cookie on top flat side down. (basically looks like a sandwich)
  12. Repeat for all cookies and refrigerate
I will warn you now that making the whoopies is really messy and sticky!
