Preheat oven to 350°F.
Beat together brown sugar, sugar, oil, and pumpkin. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, ground ginger, salt, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves. Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined.
Using a pastry bag with a round tip, or a big ziptop plastic bag with one corner snipped, squeeze out concentric circles of batter, starting from the middle and working outward until the circles are about 2-inches in diameter.
Bake for 11 minutes and cool on a cooling rack.
Beat together cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Frost flat side of half the pies and top with plain pies.
