Homemade Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe

Here is my aunt's famous recipe to make homemade Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. She makes them every Fall season for the family to enjoy and we all rave and rave about them. Finally, I decided to try to make them myself and they turned out delicious!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies Recipe

3 cups pumpkin puree
3 cups granulate sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable shortening
3 large eggs
5 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Cream the pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, vegetable shortening and the large eggs together in a large bowl. Gradually add dry ingredients. Drop them from a tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Vanilla Filling Recipe:

2 egg whites, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable shortening

In a medium sized bowl beat egg whites, vanilla extract, confectioners sugar well. Then add in the vegetable shortening and beat again until smooth. Spread filling between two baked pumpkin cookie halves.

Store the Whoopie Pies in an airtight container or wrap each one in plastic wrap.
