While I’m not one of those pumpkin-spice-all-the-things fanatics, I do love a good seasonal treat, don’t you?
And pumpkin is undeniably the food mascot of the fall season. Although the pumpkin spice latte reigns supreme these days, I’d suggest pairing this pumpkin whoopie pie recipe with a classic cup of coffee. Let this sweet treat have its moment in the spotlight.
Instead of the typical rich, heavy filling, these whoopie pies have a light, airy maple spice whipped cream filling. That pretty much makes them guilt-free, don’t you think?
Whip up a batch and enjoy!
