Tasty, tasty fall!

I have been feeling in a fall mood lately (yes, I know it’s appropriate), so I decided I wanted to make something. Something with pumpkin. And I knew exactly what that something would be.

I can’t remember now whose food blog I read about it on, but my clicking led me to Gesine Bullock-Prado and Confections of a (Closet) Master Baker. I’m desperate to read her book (she left behind a career as a Hollywood executive to open her own baker in Vermont), but until I can lift my book-buying ban, I will have to stick to reading her blog. And that’s how I knew what that something would be.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies (with maple cream cheese filling).

As you can see, I went a little overboard, both with the size of the pies part of them (I really need a scoop that’s between my normal cookie scoop and my ice cream scoop) and with the filling part (though just for this one, I went down a scoop size for the others), but they are super-yummy (even if I can’t eat an entire one).

And they taste just. Like. Fall.

I also learned a lesson tonight. Arthur likes to sleep on top of one of my kitchen cupboards. The only way for him to get down is to jump onto the counter. Where I had left my pies cooling. Yeah…I had to throw away four of them because they had paw prints in them. That’ll teach me!
