I am not a Halloween person. There I said it. Do you hate me now?
I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t get into Halloween. The only things I like about the holiday is dressing up my dog (I must confess, I live for it, he’s just too cute) and my discount candy on November 1st.
I think I got over Halloween after I grew out of the pretty pretty princess costume my Dad made for me when I was a kid. I loved that costume, I might have gotten a few Halloweens out of it. After that, I never got really creative with the costumes. Don’t get me wrong, I still went trick or treating – I mean I was a kid, I still loved the free candy!
However, while some people still love the holiday, me? Eh I can take it or leave it. Since high school, I can count the number of times I’ve dressed up on one hand. 3 – and that’s going to include this year. The only reason for this year is because hubs swing band has a gig on Halloween. Can’t really avoid it now. So my inner geek will come out, Amy Pond here I come. Time to find a ginger wig. I confess, I’ve always wanted to be a ginger, time to test drive it out!
Anyhoo, I digress. Despite my feelings towards Halloween, I still joined in for the #SundaySupper Trick-or-Treat Halloween party. Not that I need it, but I’ll take any excuse to whip up a tasty treat.
To get uniformed pies, I used my cookie scoop to measure the batter out. If you don't have one, a measuring spoon will work, but you'll end up with smaller whoopie pies - for larger ones, try a 1/4 measuring cup.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 2 cups light brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups solid packed pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 3 cups confectioners sugar
- 8oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup Biscoff spread
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.
- Using your stand mixer or a hand mixer, cream the brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, until well combined. Pour in the vanilla and then the pumpkin puree. Mix well, making sure to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
- Beat in the flour mixture in 3 parts, careful not to over mix.
- Spoon the batter onto the prepared baking sheets using a cookie scoop or measure cup, depending on how large you want the whoopie pies to be, making sure to leave at least an inch of space between each pie. Bake for 10-12 minutes (you might need more time if they are large), until done and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Remove to a cooling rack to cool and finish with remaining batter.
- While the pies are cooling, using your mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese, until fluffy - about 2 minutes.
- Mix in the Biscoff spread and then carefully add the confectioners sugar, mixing on low and gradually bringing up the speed to get a light and whipped consistency.
- To assemble, flip half the pies and either spoon or pipe a generous amount of filling onto the bottom (flat) side of each pie. Top and press down gently so the filling spreads to the end.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes prior to serving.

What adorable costumes for your dog! Mine would not be happy about being in a costume at all. I tried to put a sweater on them and they tried their best to rub it off.
How interesting that your dogs don’t like to wear clothes. My in-laws used to have two whippets and they loved wearing their jackets! Never a full sweater like the guy has on, but always something. But those dogs loved being covered in something.

You had me at Biscoff. And you captured my heart with that cute wittle pug! So, I’ll forgive you for not really caring about Halloween!
Whoopie pies are so great! These sound fantastic! Love the pug in costume too!

I haven’t tried biscoff spread as yet. I’m seeing it more and more in recipes so I think I’ll have to look for it and give it a try.
Thanks for sharing, and P.S. I’m not much of a Halloween fan either.
These look SO GOOD…I love everything with Biscoff. That stuff is like crack…have you tried the crunchy? It should be illegal…
I only recently discovered the awesomeness that is Biscoff spread…and now I want to put it in everything! I love the idea of using them for the cream in whoppie pies – YUMMMM!

Haha, love all his costumes! Post of photo of you as a ginger! Love whoopie pies. Send me some… 🙂
Yay I have the recipe! Now let’s just see if I will come up with enough patience to make these babies.
I too have never gotten into Halloween but I would dress up for Halloween for the first time if it gave me the ability to have these whoopie pies. They look amazing. By the way I love that you are going as Amy Pond. 🙂

I rarely dress up anymore…but I love helping the kids and husband (um, yeah) pick out their costumes every year! And I need myself a couple of these babies pronto. Biscoff, I love thee…
Love whoopie pies of any kind! Your pup looks cute, I wonder if my kitty would like a costume? lol
I wish Murray would let us dress him up! The most he has ever done was a party hat for his birthday (only because it came with a string so the hat stayed in place). I’ve eaten whoopie pies but I’ve never actually made them. If my frozen pumpkin makes it through the storm, I will have to make these!

I’ve been reading/seeing a lot of biscoff creams lately. I had to google it to find out what it was. Well I’m glad I did because I think I’m going to love it! Your pug is too stinkin cute in his costumes. I’ve only dressed up a handful of times myself but I am going to have a ball dressing up my son. He is going as a train coductor this year. (he loves Thomas the train)

This sounds amazing!! Sadly, I still have not bought Biscoff spread…I see so many great recipes using it, but I still haven’t picked up a jar. Cute dogs in their costumes! Our kids love dressing up our cats for Halloween, although the cats don’t seem to enjoy it.
Thx for your post, I really enjoy your blog. Long time lurker, first time commenter, you know the drill. I tried to share this one time before, I don’t think it posted correctly…hopefully it will this time!
I have been wanting to do this! Pumpkin and Biscoff go so well together, great cookies!
Okay the whoopies are amazing. You do whoopie up right. *giggles*
I love all the pug costumes. So cute. I bought Malia a “bad dog” sweater in the states for Christmas. They were all half off after Halloween.
your pet looks cute and you’ve got a unique hobby 🙂
this pie’s really looks tasty, I want to eat them. I’ll try my best to make these like yours 🙂
