This is my first month with the Cookie Carnival. :) If you are interested in joining, check out the button on the right sidebar.
This month’s recipe is Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. I wasn’t really sure about these but decided to give them a try anyway. The cream cheese filling is definitely tasty as were the cookies, but I had some “issues” in the beginning. I followed the recipe instructions, but maybe when I measured the flour I had too many air pockets?? Who knows. All I know is my first couple of batches of cookies came out HUGE (definitely not mini) and FLAT. Hmmmm. So I called Tami, knowing she had already made hers. She suggested adding some more flour, saying that her batter didn’t fall off the spoon when held up, mine definitely did.
So I added some flour, don’t ask me how much, and it definitely improved the cookies. I tried a third batch with a little more flour, but I think that was too much. The third batch came out very mini and cute, but they cracked on top, telling me there was too much flour. At any rate, they all tasted good, even the flat ones. I did run out of filling and ended up with extra cookies, but I’m sure they’ll get eaten anyway ;-)
Here’s the three different sizes (see below for recipe):
