When it came time this past week for the annual office Thanksgiving potluck lunch, I had no idea what people normally did, where the event even was held in the office, or how it might work if people brought a food item that needed to be served warm/re-heated. So, obviously in my over-analyzing panic, I decided a room temperature dessert was a safe choice to contribute!
And obviously, I chose something pumpkin...because...festive!
I also wanted something that wouldn't be messy to serve, so a cookie or bar, and then something without frosting on top, so I could make a lot and stack them in a container more easily.
I realize I put entirely too much thought into this. As per usual. Welcome to my brain ;)
Anyway, I came upon the pumpkin spice whoopie pie sandwich cookie and thought it would be perfect!!
Thanks to this awesome blog here, I found the perfect recipe.
Spiced Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with a Browned Butter Cinnamon Maple Frosting filling.
Win!! You guys, these are soo good! The perfect blend of fall flavors and spices.
Such a good option for a Thanksgiving potluck, a Friendsgiving, or give the actual pumpkin pie a run for its money at actual Thanksgiving! The more pumpkin, the better, I say.
