One thing you’ll learn about Tim is that he can be a bit modest. As a sampler of these whoopie pies, I can honestly say that they were AMAZING. I’ll also admit to not being the biggest fan of pumpkin-flavored things, but seriously, people, these were TO DIE FOR. You’ve got to try them!
Child, ain’t no pumpkin puree in Lebanon. I bought all the ingredients only to find out this fun lil fact… seriously! I was very upset and my party was less tasty because of it. Do you have advice for a substitute that may taste good?
PS – I love this blog. Also, the pics are wonderful, but when will someone be eating this stuff in the pics? Yalla, put some models to work. You know that all your friends are beautiful :)
Snaps Rima. I’m sorry to hear that. Are there pumpkins? Or even butternut squash? You could make your own puree….although that would be a whole process. You could find a recipe for chocolate whoopie pies, which would be different but still good. Or you could try making one of other recipes….?!!!!
I am waiting for you to come here so you can model all of the food.
Just made these and am really pleased with the result. However, I substituted coconut oil (first time with coconut oil) for the vegetable oil and it made the pies lumpy because the cold pumpkin puree caused the coconut oil to form hard lumps of sugar and oil. They taste delicious and hold together, but are not smooth. Wondered how important it is to chill puree…
Hi Laurel- Once you switch to the coconut oil, I have no idea. You chill the batter so that you get nice, rounded cakes that don’t spread very much. I don’t bake with coconut oil, so I can’t offer any advice. Sorry!
hey tim! i might make those walnut sandwiches cookies that you have on here, and i just saw this and was wondering if you thought this filling would go well with those cookies. my taste for caramel is never quenched!
