Top Halloween Recipe: Pumpkin Whoopee Pies

A great Halloween recipe. No doubt, traditional pumpkin pie is a classic, especially around this time of year, but what I like about these little "Whoopees" is that they can be easily shared. They're great for a party.

Whoopee Pumpkin Pies are a fun twist on a classic.

Of all the recipes we’ve published over the years on Stark Insider, the all time best for Halloween continues to be Pumpkin Whoopee Pies.

No doubt, traditional pumpkin pie is a classic, especially around this time of year, but what I like about these little “Whoopees” is that they can be easily shared. They’re great for a party. Better still, you can get creative and decorate them to your heart’s content depending on the mood or occasion.

It’s a simple, fast recipe that produces great results. Over the weekend I whipped up a batch and brought them to a Halloween party. Maybe I went over the top, but I even matched the icing with my Harley Quinn super-villain outfit by adding a decorative red diamond on top.

“Harley Quinn, pleased to meetcha!” – yours truly with desserts to match: Before I take on Batman I first distract his henchman with some whoopee pies.

As I like to say, whoopee pies are messy good in the mouth, but clean to the touch. Think of them as the sandwich of desserts:

“Wanna try my pie, Puddin’?” These Whoopee Pies are great for parties.

This Halloween why not make some whoopee? (and not war…)

Here’s the ingredients
