Gingerbread Whoopie Pies
These perfectly spiced gingerbread whoopie pies combine gingerbread flavored cake-like cookies with a rich and creamy frosting – a perfect match!
Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Treats! I can’t believe we are at the end of the 12 Days of Christmas Treats for this year. But good news – I saved one of the best for last. 🙂 You will love these gingerbread whoopie pies! I love trying different flavors of whoopie pies (in the past I’ve made pumpkin whoopie pies, s’mores whoopie pies and red velvet whoopie pies), and these are just as good, if not better, than previous versions.
For those who aren’t familiar, a whoopie pie is just two cake-like cookies sandwiched around a creamy filling. In this case the cookies are gingerbread flavored, and the filling is a simple cream cheese icing. The gingerbread flavor is strong, which I love, but be careful if you’re not a huge gingerbread fan.
The cream cheese icing is the perfect accompaniment, and these cookies are so fun to make and eat. Plus, they look pretty cute and impressive on your cookie tray! I sprinkled powdered sugar on top for an extra festive top, but feel free to leave it off if you prefer. Enjoy!!
