{Pumpkin Whoopie Pies and Fall Porch}

Happy Monday!! 

What a good weekend we had! I barely took any pictures, but believe me it was good. I also knocked a couple of things off our Fall Bucketlist; bake some Fall goodies and decorate my porch. The porch is still a work in progress, but I love it so far! 

For the Pumpkin Whoopie pies I used this recipe.

Ingredients - 

1 Moist Spice cake mix
1/3 cup of butter, softened
1 can of pumpkin
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 whole eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1 container of cream cheese frosting

Directions - 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In large bowl mix the cake mix, butter, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, eggs, and milk. The consistency is pretty wet.
3. Drop dollops on the cookie sheet. Try to make them the same size so that when you sandwich them together they are a good fit.
4. Bake for 10-11 minutes.
5. Let them cool completely and then put icing one the bottom of one and sandwich another with it. 

ps - this mixture makes a ton of cookies! I ended up using 4 cookie sheets and made the last ones huge just to use up the mixture.

  2. I love the crates and pumpkin start of your porch decor! I still have yet to decorate our front porch! I haven't baked any Fall dessert but I am going to bake an apple pie (just gotta find a good recipe!). I've crossed off some things off of my bucket list too. We are doing great!

  7. I've always wanted to make whoopee pies but am always scared. They look so intimidating! Were they pretty easy to make? If so, I might need to add this to my fall bucket list :)
