Pumpkiny, Chocolatey, Decadent Whoopie Pies

I live in Pennsylvania. I’m a transplant. I originally come from Michigan. My husband is a PA native. Around these parts, they call whoopie pie (a Michigan/Mennonite term) “gobs”. So, depending on what part of the world you are from we will be making pumpkin whoopie pies/gobs today. I hope you enjoy these yummy little cakes as much as my husband and I do. They are so rich and chocolatey!

Check out what my pals over at The Crumbs And Chaos had to say about this recipe:

When I saw this Pumpkin Chocolate Whoopie Pie in my newest Everyday Food Magazine, I knew that this would be my fall whoopie pie.  The pumpkin cream cheese combo is an obvious, but yummy one.  However, the chocolate adds a richness that I love!

These pumpkin and chocolate whoopie pies are uh-mazing. seriously, you have got to make these yummy thangs!

2 teaspoons McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder

3/4 cup Heavy Cream, divided

Preheat oven to 350°.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, melted butter and 1/4 cup heavy cream. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and whisk just until combined.
Drop dough in 2 Tablespoons mounds, 1 inch apart on to two parchment-lined baking sheets.  Bake until tops of cookies spring back when gently pressed, about 14 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to wire racks and let cool completely.
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat room temperature butter, 1/2 cup heavy cream, cocoa powder and confectioner’s sugar on medium-high until fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Spread filling on flat side of half of a cookie, sandwich with remaining cookie.  To serve, dust with confectioner’s sugar.
