  • 8 oz Cream cheese 224g
  • 1 cup Powdered sugar 120g
  • 1 tsp Orange zest zest of 1 orange

VAMPIRE ASSEMBLY

  • 1 Tbsp Slivered almonds teeth!
  • 12 Edible googly eyes eyes!
  • 2 Tbsp Raspberry or strawberry jam for bleeding!
  • 20 Mini marshmallows teeth!

Instructions

PUMPKIN WHOOPIE PIES

  • Preheat your oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the brown sugar, oil, pumpkin and egg. Whisk from the center outwards just until the batter comes together.
  • Scoop evenly-sized mounds of batter onto the parchment-paper lined sheets (we used a healthy scoop from a 3/4 ounce portion scooper, or the equivalent of 3 tablespoons of batter). Tap each cookie sheet a couple of times on your counter and bake for about 10 minutes, or just until set in the center of each mound.

WHOOPIE PIE FILLING

  • Cream all ingredients together until smooth.

ASSEMBLY

  • Take 2 of your whoopie pies and dollop a generous amount of filling between them. One the top, attach your edible eyes using some of your filling. Line the outer edge of one half of your filling (beneath the eyes) with mini marshmallows. Between the front two "teeth" put in slivered almonds for fangs! Dab the upper and lower whoopie pies with some jam, and enjoy!
