Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies... You might have had them before, but you have never tasted them like this!  They are delicious, easy (ONLY 2 INGREDIENTS!), and (semi-)healthy! So buy some cake mix and pumpkin and heat up that oven.  You'll thank me!

~Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

1 can pumpkin puree
1 box of yellow cake mix

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix the box cake and the pumpkin puree until combined. Take a teaspoon ice cream scoop and drop the batter onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 13 minutes. Allow the pies to cool and then slice them in half horizontally. Spread cinnamon cream cheese icing in the center and enjoy!

~Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing

4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and cinnamon.
