On The Menu: Pumpkin Whoopie Pies With Maple Filling
These pumpkin pies are likely one of the most popular recipes Jessica and I make. Between the months of October through December Jessica and I receive so many requests for these whoopie pies we have even received countless requests were people have offered to buy them from us. They are simple to make but a little time consuming. The cookies are soft and moist and the pumpkin flavor screams fall and the holidays. Plus, the maple filling is so delicious.

Directions for Filling:
1. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter in large bowl until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
2. Add marshmallow creme and maple extract; beat until blended and smooth. DO AHEAD Can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

Directions for Cookies:
1. Sift first 7 ingredients into large bowl.
2. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in another large bowl until blended. Gradually beat in oil. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating to blend between additions.
3. Beat in pumpkin. Add dry ingredients in 2 additions alternately with milk in 1 addition, beating to blend between additions and occasionally scraping down sides of bowl.
4. 4. Cover and chill batter 1 hour.
5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
6. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Spoon batter onto baking sheet to form cakes. We found that it was easiest to use a cookie scooper.
7. Bake cakes until tester inserted into centers comes out clean. It took ours about 10 minutes. If you make larger ones it will take a few extra minutes to bake.
