Pumpkin Whoopie Pie at Bklyn Larder

It’s hard to escape “pumpkin-flavored” foods these days, finding it in everything from coffee to M&Ms. And we’ll admit to falling for its appeal — warm and spicy and only available for a limited time, it’s easy to get excited about it — especially when it’s done well.

Enter the pumpkin whoopie pie at Bklyn Larder (228 Flatbush Avenue). If you’ve never had whoopie pie, it’s basically a cake with frosting on the inside, and this version has all the wonderful spice, plus some actual pumpkin flavor, that makes you feel warm even on a very cold day. It’s sweet without being cloying, and is the kind of sticky, cakey mess that will have you licking your fingers to get every last bit of your $3’s worth. And yes, it’s only available for a short time, so get in there and enjoy it while you can.
