If you're looking for an autumnal and adult dessert to serve at Thanksgiving, this pumpkin whoopie pie will hit the spot. From A Cookie Named Desire, the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Caramel and Boozy Ganache will also feed into your pumpkin spice addiction.
The small cake sandwiches have a fall flavored pumpkin taste. The ganache also incorporates a bit of pepper to give it a slight spicy kick, although you could potentially add seasonal spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, clove or ginger instead. Amanda used dried Thai chilli peppers as well. The ganache filling of the pumpkin whoopie pie is spiked with honey bourbon too (but cinnamon bourbon would also work). To top the whole thing off, the dessert is glazed with caramel, giving it a satisfying crunch.
