I recently did a review for pumpkin ale. It was yucky. The beer, not the review. The review was lovely. I decided after that it would be better to review things I already knew I liked. For instance...pumpkin whoopie cookies.
So in review. Pumpkin whoopie cookies are good. Here's how ya get 'em.
First you have to have a good assistant. One who will get off the phone with Gramma as soon as she asks her what the oven temp. should be. Ahem.
Cream 1 cup shortening and 2 cups brown sugar
In a different bowl combine 31/2 cups flour, 11/2 tsp each baking powder and baking soda, 1 tsp each salt, cinnamon, and ginger.
Then take turns adding that and one cup of pumpkin filling to the shortening mixture. Mix it all up and drop it by spoon fulls on a cookies sheet. Bake at 400 for 10-11 minutes.
Next finish the filling.
Beat 2 cups confectioners sugar, 1 cup shortening, 2 tsp vanilla. Add the chilled mixture to this and beat for SEVEN minutes.
These cookies are probably not good for you an if you give them to your kids after dinner they may get all excited and never to to sleep. Don't say I didn't warn you.
