Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • cups Truvia® Sweet Complete™ All-Purpose Sweetener
  • 2 eggs room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling

Instructions

To make pumpkin spice cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together softened butter and Truvia® Sweet Complete™ on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well to integrate each.
  • Add pumpkin puree and vanilla extract, beating until smooth.
  • Pour half of the flour mixture into the wet mixture, beating until integrated, then continue with the other half of flour mixture.
  • Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough (or use a cookie scoop to portion) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and sprayed.
  • Bake 13-16 minutes, until springy to the touch.
  • Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire baking racks to cool completely before frosting.

To make filling & assemble whoopie pies:

  • To a large bowl, add softened cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat together with a hand mixer on medium speed, until fluffy.
  • Gradually beat in Truvia® Confectioners, adding ½ cup at a time, until light and fluffy.
  • Spread a heaping teaspoon of frosting onto the flat side of one cookie, and top with a second cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat to assemble as many whoopie pies as desired.
  • Cover or store assembled whoopie pies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. Store unfrosted pumpkin spice cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. (For best results, assemble whoopie pies at the time of eating with freshly whipped frosting!)
  • Yields 44 pumpkin spice cookies, or 22 assembled whoopie pies.
