This post and recipe, Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Dulce de Leche Filling, are a part of the “Bake a Difference with OXO for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer and Dorie Greenspan” campaign. The recipe is from Dorie’s upcoming book Dorie’s Cookies. This was originally posted on 10/21/2016.
I was recently contacted by the lovely people at OXO about making cookies for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, and trying some of their fantastic baking toys.
I’m always honored to participate in Cookies for Kids’ Cancer; it’s an amazing organization that has raised over $17 million granted to the leading pediatric cancer research centers across the country.
Did you know that cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the US? I also found out that the foundation only receives 4% of the annual budget from the National Institutes of Health. That’s eye opening.
1 in 285 children will be diagnosed by the time they are 20. This is a definitely a fight I can get behind.
Now, let’s talk cookies.
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Dulce de Leche Filling
These cookies aren’t just any cookies.
They’re Dorie Greenspan’s cookies, and they’re from her delicious book Dorie’s Cookies. It’s so much fun just looking through the book.
I highly suggest getting this for your coffee table.
It’s just that pretty.
I definitely have an affinity for OXO – their products are superior.
These cookies are so much easier to make than I expected.
You know me, I don’t make that many dessert recipes, but this one I had to because….well, Dorie, of course. You can never go wrong with a Dorie recipe.
Aren’t these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies the cutest?
The cranberry isn’t overwhelming at all; it adds just the right bit of contrast to the pumpkin, and the Dulce de Leche filling was brilliant.
These are the tools OXO sent to use for the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, and I highly recommend every one of them.
Non-stick Pro 12 Cup Muffin Pan
It’s scratch, stain, corrosion and abrasion-resistant. It’s definitely durable and has an impressive nonstick surface.
It also wipes clean SO much easier than typical metal pans.
I have a plethora of scoops of all sizes, and this medium scoop is hands down the best I’ve ever used. Everything from the comfy grip to the ease of the release makes this a superior scoop.
If you spend any amount of time in the kitchen, you know that a good spatula is a serious necessity. This one will be your ride-or-die.
This is a pretty unique tool.
It’s a hand mixer that’s convenient for both right and left-handed users, 6-speed settings including intuitive digital controls to steadily increase or decrease speed, and a light (optional, turns on and off with a button) that illuminates the bowl as you mix.
