Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies (from mix) with Marshmallow Fluff

I was watching QVC and one of the presenters was retiring. She was a baker by trade and on her last day shared a tip that caught my eye... She said if you add one extra cup of A/P flour to a standard store bought cake mix, portion out dough and bake cookies, you end up with soft whoopie pies! I immediately added that to my list of things to try:@) And since we're well into the season... Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Fluff. You-are-welcome. Good stuff folks!

The fluff is looser than I thought.
So these need to be placed in the fridge,
and will be a gooey mess😃
But in the best way possible...

Using the same size cookie scoop,
one 7 oz jar of Fluff will fill about 12-14 cookies.
Another filling option is icing.

Dollar Tree had small jars of orange:
Actually, you can find
cake mix, spice, and fluff,
all at Dollar Tree too.

Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies with Marshmallow Fluff
*Makes approximately 20 cookies
One box spice cake mix-can use yellow or white, add extra pumpkin spice
All ingredients called for on box
1 C A/P flour
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
7 oz jar marshmallow fluff 
  1. Mix everything except fluff.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Using a cookie scoop (mine makes around 3" cookies), drop batter onto parchment.
  4. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set.
  5. Remove cookies to cooling rack. You will find a lot of crumbs on the bottom of the cookies. After they cool, gently rub cookie bottoms on cooling rack, this will clean the crumbs off.
  6. Use clean cookie scoop to fill with fluff. Gently add second cookie on top. 
  7. *This is a gooey oozy cookie folks, best placed in the fridge, in covered container, when you make them.
Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)


  1. I like this idea! Who wouldn’t live a Whoopie pie??

  2. What a yummy fall treat! And using icing is brilliant!

  3. What a splendid idea, and what scrumptious marvels you've created!! I'd never have thought of orange with the pumpkin, but it sounds delightful. This is the season half my correspondents begin long for pumpkin spice coffee, and I even bought a jar of the spice years ago. I truly WANT to long for that rich, sweet gently spiced concoction, but I can get only so far as to sprinkle a grudging once onto my deep mug of strong 100% COLUMBIAN PEAKS, and sip through the aroma.

    But Pumpkin rolls and roulades and pies and tarts and biscuits---you've added a new TRY OUT to the grocery list. HAPPY FALL from the Heartland!!


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
