Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies        

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or rice milk)
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, oil, and milk. Add into dry ingredients. Mix just until fully incorporated.
  4. If you have a whoopie pie pan (amazon has one!), fill each round until 3/4 full (about 1 tablespoon) Otherwise, on a parchment lined baking sheet, spread out about 1 tablespoon of the dough to form pies 2-3 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let sit for 2 minutes on pan, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Using your favorite frosting (many Betty Crocker frostings are gluten free – I suggest vanilla buttercream, one of my all time favorites), spread about 1/2 tablespoon on bottom side up of each tie and top with another. OR try this homemade frosting recipe!
