Instructions

For the whoopie pies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the spice cake mix and pumpkin. The batter will be very thick.
  • Using a whoopie pie pan, fill each cup about 3/4 of the way with batter.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and then remove the pies and transfer to a wire cooling rack.

For the filling:

  • Using a hand mixer, beat the butter on high speed until fluffy.
  • Combine the cream cheese and continue to mix until smooth and well-combined.
  • Add the confectioner's sugar and vanilla and mix thoroughly. (For stiffer filling, use a little more confectioner's sugar.)
  • Spread one half of each whoopie pie with about 2 tablespoons of filling (use more or less as desired).
  • Place the other whoopie pie half on top of the filling.
  • Sprinkle the fall-themed sprinkles around the outside of the filling (optional).
  • Store in a tight container in the refrigerator.
