**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

Yay! It is finally here! A week filled with nothing but my favorite bloggers sharing their pumpkin recipes AND some great giveaways! To kick things off my friend Aimee from Shugary Sweets is here sharing her Pumpkin Whoopie pies!

Aimee's blog is filled with tons of sinful desserts and treats. If you want a fudge recipe or a killer cookie or cupcake. Be sure to check her out. I can tell you first hand... this Root Beer Float Fudge is amazing. I made it a month or so ago, my husbands co-workers gobbled it up. It will be making another appearance in my Christmas tins.

Not only do I have Aimee's Whoopie Pies to share with you.... KitchenAid has teamed up with me and has sponsored a giveaway you don't want to miss! Be sure to enter at the bottom of this post!

Pumpkin!

I kind of have an addiction to all things pumpkin. Fudge. Krispie Treats. Cheesecake Cake. Biscotti. Truffles. Scones. Cupcakes....and more.

Yeah. Addicted.

Anyways, when Carrie asked me if I'd be interested in guest posting, for PUMPKIN WEEK, ummm yeah. No hesitation. I knew I wanted to share my Pumpkin Whoopie Pie recipe too, one that I haven't yet shared on Shugary Sweets.

I know this time of year everyone is making whoopies.

WHOOPIE PIES. Get your mind out of the gutter! Whoopie Pies.

But I filled mine with a chocolate cream cheese filling. Cause I think it goes amazingly well with the pumpkin. Try it.

This recipe makes 32-36 sandwiches, so feel free to do what I do.

No. Not eat them all while watching Grey's Anatomy.

Freeze them! I stick them in a ziploc freezer bag so that my kids can grab one for their school lunches. By lunch time they are thawed and ready to eat.

And in case you're wondering...yes, they are delicious frozen too.

for the pumpkin pie:

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup canola oil

1 can (15oz) pure pumpkin

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp kosher salt

for the filling:

1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup butter, softened

4 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3-4 Tbsp heavy cream

sprinkles

In large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients for whoopie pies until blended. Fill a large ziploc bag. Snip of corner of bag. Pipe circles of filling, using a spiral rotation, onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet (my circles were about 2 1/2 inch). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove and cool.

When completely cooled, make filling. Beat cream cheese and butter for 3 minutes in mixer. Add powdered sugar, cocoa and heavy cream. Beat an additional 3 minutes until fluffy. Add more cream if necessary. Scoop tablespoons of filling onto one whoopie pie and top it with a matching sized cookie. Add sprinkles if desired. ENJOY. *recipe adapted from Martha Stewart*
