Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 12, 2010

The originally scheduled post on French Press Coffee has been postponed for something much more important and, ahem, pressing.

I think you will see why I had to get this off my chest…

20101012-IMG_5936

Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies are my new favourite Fall treat.

WHOOPIE!

I have always been a huge fan of whoopie pies. They are the perfect combination of whoopie and pie, don’t you think?

A bit spongy, a bit cakey, with a fluffy and sweet middle. How could you go wrong? When I became a vegan, I thought my whoopie pie days were long over, but today I realized I could make whoopie like the rest of ‘em. ;)

Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies (Vegan)

I’m not sure why, but I was expecting these vegan pumpkin spice whoopie pies to be a huge flop. However, they turned out delicious. The combination of spices and pumpkin was spot on. They would make a wickedly delicious Halloween dessert or a fun treat to bring to a Thanksgiving potluck!

Inspired by Martha and Vegan Yum Yum.

Ingredients:

  • 1 heaping cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1.25 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup whole-grain Kamut flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance buttery spread
  • 1/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sucanat sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
  • Spiced Butter Cream Frosting (without almond milk)

 

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with a non-stick mat or parchment paper. In a small bowl mix together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside. In a mixer, mix together the Earth Balance and sugars until fluffy. Now add in the heaping cup of pumpkin, molasses, and vanilla extract and mix until fully combined. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flours, spices, baking powder + soda, and salt). Grab the almond milk mixture and slow add about 1/3 of it to the mixer. Mix for a few seconds, stop and now add some dry ingredients. Alternate until everything is mixed well. Scrape sides of bowl as necessary. Now grab your baking sheets and scoop 1-2 tbsp of dough onto the sheet, making sure to leave about 1.5 inches between each cookie. Once you have scooped all your dough onto the pan, wet fingers very well and gently smooth out the dough into a round circle and flatten slightly. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect! Bake for about 9-10 minutes and remove from oven, allowing to cool. While cooling, mix your spiced buttercream icing (make sure not to add the almond milk or it will be too runny!). In a baggie or a piping bag, pipe on a thick coating of icing onto one cookie/pie and then take another cookie/pie and press over top. Repeat for all whoopie pies. Makes 12-30 whoopie pies depending on how big you make them.

First things first, mix your sugars and Earth Balance:

 20101012-IMG_5775

Add in pumpkin, molasses, and vanilla extract…

20101012-IMG_5778

20101012-IMG_5803

Mix, mix, mix!

20101012-IMG_5821

In another bowl, mix your dry ingredients together.

20101012-IMG_5824

Slowly add in the almond milk mixture alternating with the dry mixture and mix well.

20101012-IMG_5835

Scoop on 1-2 tbsp of dough per pie. Wet fingers and flatten + smooth out the dough.

20101012-IMG_5839

Don’t worry, they don’t have to be perfect! You can make the pie/cookie thicker than I made it. It really can be adapted to how you like your pies. Personally, I prefer a very high ratio of frosting to pie. ;)

20101012-IMG_5840

Now mix the Spiced Buttercream Icing! Mmmm. My favourite frosting.

20101012-IMG_5842 

20101012-IMG_5844

After baking pies for about 9 minutes at 350F, remove from oven and cool.

20101012-IMG_5859

While cooling, grab a baggie or pastry bag and fill interior with frosting.

20101012-IMG_5847

20101012-IMG_5848

Of course you can spread on the frosting with a wet knife too. I just happen to think piping it on is more fun. :)

20101012-IMG_5852

20101012-IMG_5925

Now smoosh another cookie on top!

 20101012-IMG_5894

Stuff the first one in your mouth. I hope I didn’t need to tell you that, though.

20101012-IMG_5897

Almost too cute to eat. ;)

20101012-IMG_5934 

You can make huge pies or itty bitty ones!

20101012-IMG_5945

You can even sprinkle on some chopped pecans before baking.

20101012-IMG_5946

I don’t know why, but I thought they were going to be a huge flop. They actually tasted perfect to me. They weren’t the most beautiful Whoopie Pies I have ever seen, but I’m not too fussy about that as long as they taste good. :)

Next time, I think I would roll the frosting edges in chopped pecans instead of sprinkling it onto the cookie dough before baking. Other than that, I wouldn’t change much at all!

20101012-IMG_5947 

Are you a whoopie pie fan? What flavour combinations do you like?

I’d love to make a chocolate peanut butter variety next. Mmmm. Mint chocolate would be good too.

I WANT TO MAKE THESE!!! If I make them without the molasses, will they still taste ok? Or can do you think I can replace the molasses with another syrup?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 12, 2010 at 5:42 pm

oh yea making them without molasses will be just fine! I only used 1/2 tsp anyways.

CathyK October 12, 2010 at 4:39 pm

haha, are we on the same wavelength or what, today?!
i was thinking about whoopie pies earlier today – i think i should make them for a family hallowe’en treat. don’t think i have had one since high school…so, i am overdue with a whoopie recipe!
my favourite flavour would be chocolate with a vanilla icing centre. but should you feel the desire to whip up a peanut butter and chocolate whoopie combo, well…i would only respond with, “whooooppieeee!!!!”

Reply

Noelle October 12, 2010 at 4:40 pm

I was just thinking you should make chocolate with mint. I have been wanting to make these too! Namely Marly made some vegan whoopie pies too. http://www.namelymarly.com/2010/10/vegan-pumpkin-whoopie-pies/ I feel so left behind, but YET I made my own pumpkin vegan cinnamon rolls today. No regrets. Your post made me smile. Your pies look like they were smiling. :)

Noooo I really wanted to get back on track with eating better after Thanksgiving (your pumpkin pie and dinner roll recipes were fantastic by the way) and now you post these awesome looking whoopie pies that I just happen to have all the ingredients for. What is a girl to do? I obviously can’t not make them, sooo off to the kitchen I go. :P

p.s All your recipes are fantastic, well all the ones that I have tried anyway and there have been many. Thank you for being such a creative genius in the kitchen Angela! :)

Those look amazing. I’ve been seeing pumpkin whoopie pies at some local farmers’ markets, and they look delicious. Thanks for sharing this – I didn’t know it was so easy to make the cookie part.

I love the classic ones, and I bet a chocolate-peanut butter-banana one would be really good too.

mmm yes banana would be a wonderful addition to the choco PB version!

I was just ooggling the whoopie pies at our local vegan resturant today. I opted for a chocolate twinkel (twinkie)….but if there had been some of these I might have given them a go. Her frosting is the consistency of oreo cookie filling…is yours similar?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 12, 2010 at 5:45 pm

My frosting is not as hard as the oreo frosting I would say. Softer..I would think

If I were to pick a flavour I think these pumpkin one’s would be at the top of the list. But chocolate is always good too!

Do you think the recipe would work substituting the AP flour for GF, AP baking mix?

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 12, 2010 at 6:25 pm

I have never used an GF AP baking mix, so I am not sure. is it supposed to replace regular AP flour? If so, I can’t see why it wouldn’t work. :)

Hmm, I made chocolate whoopie pies (non-vegan, obviously) and the batter was so much thinner than this, and they spread out so much! Not to say that these don’t look amazing though. And the buttercream looks like heaven.

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 12, 2010 at 7:12 pm

You could make the batter thinner by using more almond milk

Yes! I want to make these and the other varieties you suggested. Yummerz!! What type/brand of piping set do you have? I would like to get one and I think you are just the gal to ask. Also, I can’t find Kumat flour within a 90 mile radius of me–honest. What can I substitute in place of it?

The piping set is from Bulk Barn I believe!

You can sub all purpose for kamut or a mix of AP + whole wheat or AP + spelt probably.

I have to agree with you. I made a vegan chocolate cake last Christmas and it was wonderful! Also, sometimes the Whole Foods by me makes vegan biscotti, and it’s so yummy! I wish they made them all the time! Something about vegan makes this goodies moister – I don’t know why…

I was just going to suggest adding dark chocolate chips to Angie’s pumpkin whoopie pies. I altered an applesauce cookie recipe to be pumpkin chocolate chip – it’s wonderful. A guy at work says that my cookies were “forged by Jesus himself in the fires of Heaven.” I guess he likes them :0) My recipe unfortunately has a lot of butter and I need to figure out what to substitute it with, thanks for the link!

As soon as I saw this, I absolutely HAD to make it! I just finished it a few minutes ago, and can I just say, that spiced buttercream frosting is heaven…just to die for!!!!!!!!!! The bowl is so empty, I don’t see a need to put it in the dishwasher! ;-)

One question for you though…my whoopie pies (cake part) turned out a bit dense. I had this problem with a vegan pumpkin bread that I made (failed…) last weekend. The bread turned out a lot worse…more like a dense, rich dessert than a bread. The whoopie pies are thinner, so they still taste great, but I was wondering if the ones you made were as dense, or if I’m just adding too much pumpkin (or something else).

I absolutely cannot wait to try these! I love EarthBalance spread and can’t resist anything pumpkin spice! What a great idea!

Oh, these look awesome. I mighty make some to bring to work for Halloween! I think a chocolate mint combo rolled in crushed candy canes would be good around the holidays.

Hi, I can’t seem to find Kamut flour – is there a substitute that can be used? Will be bringing these for Thanksgiving! They look so fun! :-) Thanks

Hi Kathy, All purpose flour will work as a sub. I also suggest adding a touch more baking powder as they turned out more flat and dense than I was hoping.

Hi Angela,
These look delicious! Is there a substitute I can use for Kamut flour?
