Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple-Brown Butter Filling

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl stir together first seven ingredients (through cloves).
  2. In a large bowl beat brown sugar, oil, and melted butter with a mixer on medium until combined. Add pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla; beat 1 minute. Add flour mixture, half at a time, beating well after each addition (batter will resemble thick cake batter).
  3. Drop batter by tablespoons 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
  4. Spread Maple-Brown Butter Filling on bottoms of half of the cookies, using about 2 tsp. for each cookie. Top with remaining cookies, bottom sides down; press gently to spread filling. Chill 30 minutes before serving.

To Store

Place filled cookies in a single layer in an airtight container. Store in refrigerator up to 3 days. Tops of cookies will be slightly tacky, so let cookies stand at room temperature 30 minutes before serving. For longer storage, freeze unfilled cookies up to 3 months. To serve, thaw cookies and fill as directed.
