  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, oil, applesauce, vanilla, and pumpkin. Mix in the egg and stir well to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and stir just until completely mixed.
  • Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto the prepared baking sheets. This works best with a small cookie scoop. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • To assemble the whoopie pie sandwiches, make maple cream cheese frosting and spread in between two cookies.
