It’s not fall without the perfect pumpkin cookie and these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookies are creamy, dreamy and just what you’ve been looking for.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookies
I posted this over on My Baking Addiction earlier this month and it was too good to not share you with! I also have a cake mix version of this recipe if that’s more your style! Pumpkin Cream Cheese Sandwich Cookies are one of my favorite because they’re perfect to make the night before any party. They actually taste better the next day (pumpkin flavors develop over time) and I store mine in the fridge and they taste better cold too! That way, the filling doesn’t squish out when you bite into them.
Cookie Sandwiches and Whoopie Pies
Okay, I don’t even know what the real difference is but it doesn’t matter what you call these, because they’re amazing either way! It’s always the perfect ratio between cookie and filling and they don’t make a mess! They travel perfectly because you can stack them all up in a tupperware and you don’t have to drive like a grandma to deliver them safely. When I drive with cupcakes in my car people probably want to murder me. I take the turns so slowly and can’t accelerate too fast either.
Pumpkin in August…No Thanks
I saw bloggers posting pumpkin recipes in August! I was getting in married is August so my mind was no where near anything pumpkin. It was stuffed full of flower crowns, ties, centerpieces, photographers and 3 tiered cakes. I’m also a believer that if you start pumpkin stuff too early, I’ll get burned out by Thanksgiving. I want to enjoy that pumpkin pie after stuffing my face all day long… mmm.
But I will be honest, sometime every year around April I end up busting out a can of pumpkin and whipping something up. I just miss it so much!
Cream Cheese Filling is awwwwwesome. It’s creamy, tangy and the perfect match for these fluffy pumpkin cookies! Sometimes frosting gets a bad rap because it’s too sweet! Bakeries always pour pounds and pounds of powdered sugar into their frosting because it makes it less expensive to make. But using cream cheese and the right amount of powdered sugar makes this filling divine.
