pumpkin whoopie pies with maple cream cheese filling

Trick or Treat! If you're looking for something sweet and pumpkiny to serve up this Halloween, look no further than these pumpkin whoopie pies. The cookies are soft, delicately spiced, and not too sweet--they're almost like an especially delicious muffin top. The cream cheese icing on the other hand is rich, creamy and made deliciously sweet by the addition of maple syrup.

I considered it a huge success that I managed not to eat the whole batch in one sitting. They're really that good--and that's no trick.
