Pumpkin Spice Cookies or Whoopie Pies | 1 Recipe, 2 Ways

Once fall hits, I want all of the warm spices - in my coffee, and especially in my baked goods.  I want the scent wafting through my kitchen constantly.  These were a big hit for an after school snack last week.  They are the softest things you've ever had - like pillows.  


The Fall Collection

This recipe is a little preview of some new items that will be available Tuesday for the launch of The Fall Collection.  The collection will include three block print linen collections (a little peek of one here), new candles with nostalgic scents, a line of dish soap, counter spray and hand lotions.  I've also sourced new packaging ideas - like the cotton twill tape I used in the packaging above in wonderful autumnal colors.

They are more like the tops of cupcakes than they are cookies, which is why I had the idea to turn them into whoopie pies, as well.

With this one batch, I made a handful of fun whoopie pies to give away as a gift and still had a dozen  cookies to bring to a party that night.  It is a super easy recipe to stir together that will make your kitchen smell like fall.
