Don’t you love the smell of gingerbread baking in the oven?  It just warms your soul on a cold winter day! I love the traditional chocolate whoopie pie, but I think a spicy gingerbread whoopie pie is perfect for Fall and Winter.  Even though these little beauties aren’t very dark, don’t let them fool you.  They’re spicy, flavorful, and addicting.  The filling is so light and delicious, I’m going to have to figure out another way to use it in another recipe!  I also think that these cake-like cookies would be great with a cream cheese frosting!  Just a thought…

    Jane,

    I have tried a ginger whoopie pie in the past and thought it was sooooo good. Yours looks divine and this recipe doesn’t look that difficult – I will have to try it!

    DANG, those look SO good! I’m reading this at 9:30pm and I have to be up at 4:30 tomorrow morning, so these will have to wait until the weekend. I’m a diehard gingerbread fan, so you can bet I’ll be baking them a LOT this holiday! THANKS :-)

    These are great! I did not have marshmallow fluff, so I used another recipe that I had for “Twinkie” filling and flavored it with rum and a little nutmeg. I also made one other small change to the recipe: I used granulated sugar instead of brown and added an extra tbsp. of molasses. I used a cookie scoop for uniformity and got 36 (2 1/2″) cookies /18 whoopie pies. I have saved the recipe and will make them again without the filling and just a simple vanilla frosting for an “everyday” cookie. And I think that I may add some ground clove and increase the ginger to make them a little spicier.
