Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Beat first 7 ingredients with mixer until blended. Scoop into 32 mounds, 3 inches apart, on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, using about 2 Tbsp. for each.
Bake 12 to 14 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool on baking sheet 2 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Beat cream cheese, marshmallow creme, ginger and cinnamon in large bowl with mixer until blended. Whisk in COOL WHIP.
Spread 3 Tbsp. onto flat side of 1 cake; top with second cake, flat side down. Roll edge in sprinkles. Repeat with remaining cakes. Keep refrigerated.
Use 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Vanilla Bean Flavor Pudding.
You'll know it's a special occasion when you get to enjoy one of these delicious pumpkin-flavored treats.
Substitute KRAFT Caramel Bits or toffee bits for the chopped ginger, stirring them into the cream cheese mixture along with the COOL WHIP.
Any leftover whoopie pies can be frozen. No need to thaw them before serving - they're equally as delicious when served frozen.
Use a small ice cream scoop to quickly portion the dough onto the prepared baking sheet.
The cakes can be baked ahead of time. Cool, then freeze up to 2 weeks. When freezing, place in single layer in pan to prevent them from sticking together. Thaw completely before using to assemble the whoopie pies.
