Frame: And The Winner Is…

October 7, 2010

NOT ME! But I have to admit, as soon as I saw what is now the winning entry in the Local In Season Recipe Contest- Pumpkin Whoopie Pies- I knew I was in trouble. It also didn’t help to receive about 40 emails this week stating “I voted for you, but I really wanted to vote for the whoopie pies.” Thanks, friends.

As I’ve said again and again, I’m not a baker, but I have to hand it to the winner, Kathy Pastisteas- this recipe looks pretty foolproof.  Maybe I will try some out after I eat my Baked Fall Vegetables with Thyme and Gruyere. Which, by the way, are delicious.

Congratulations Kathy!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 cup cooked and mashed pumpkin
Cream the above ingredients until smooth. Then add the dry ingredients and mix.
2 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
Drop by teaspoon onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until cookies feel firm when touched. Allow cookies to cool.
8 oz. marscapone cheese at room temperature
1/4 to 1/2 cup maple syrup, depending on the sweetness of the syrup
Mix filling together, to taste. Spread between two cookies matched for size and shape. Refrigerate to firm filling (if you can wait).
