Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Whoopies

Maine Recipe, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pie

My mother’s recipe — however, I added the chocolate chips!

2 egg yolks

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup oil

1 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups pumpkin

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 cups flour

1 cup (approx.) milk chocolate chips

Mix well. Use a large spoon to drop on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8–10 minutes (maybe longer depending on the size you make them — test them to make sure they are baked through).

Filling:

This is the BEST filling – if you don’t make the pumpkin whoopies, I suggest you use this filling for all your whoopie recipes!

3/4 cup butter

1 1/3 cups confectioners sugar

1/2 tub FLUFF (marshmallow)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix well. An electric mixer works best.

Fill whoopies once they have completely cooled. ENJOY!
