Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • 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.

Special Equipment Needed


Use 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O SIMPLY GOOD Vanilla Bean Flavor Pudding.

Size Wise

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.

Make Ahead

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are SO yummy! These are SO yummy! I made them for our Mommy's Group Halloween Party and they were a huge hit. They were not nearly as difficult as I thought they would be (my first time making whoopie pies!). The cream filling was perfect...I was afraid the ginger would be overpowering but it was absolutely perfect. The only thing was I couldn't roll it in sprinkles because the filling didn't stick out far enough and they stuck to the cake; so I ended up just sprinkling directly onto the filling while holding the pies. Worked like a charm! Will definately make these again, and next time I'll use fresh mashed roasted pumpkin! :) YUM!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for Thanksgiving this year and brought them over to my family's house. I made these for Thanksgiving this year and brought them over to my family's house. They were such a hit that the regular pumpkin pies that were sitting on the counter got forgotten about until the next day! I made them using my mini ice cream scooper so they came out nice and small and replaced the crystallized ginger with 1 tsp of the dried stuff I had in my cupboard. I will definitely be making these again:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTAL AWESOMENESS. TOTAL AWESOMENESS. They almost didnt make it to the cookout/bonfire that we attended. We loved the filling. I have never made whoopie pies before because I thought they would be too difficult. They were real easy. My grandkids helped and enjoyed the easy steps. They were moist and not too sweet. We will be making them again for Thanksgiving and Christmas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Wow! This was a hit! Pretty easy recipe, only had a little trouble with the ginger--had to add sugar while chopping in mini blender so it wouldn't turn into a sticky ball. Very yummy! I used spice cake mix, sugar free pudding, 1/3 less fat cream cheese and low fat whipped cream---to save a few calories--still very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are amazing! These are amazing! Because I'm not a big ginger fan, I didn't use the granulated ginger, but did put in 1 tsp of ground ginger. I also made them smaller by using a 1 tbsp scoop instead of a 2 tbsp--I like the smaller size. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this recipe! Love this recipe! I did change the filling though. I used the seasonal vanilla cool whip rather than the regular cool whip and did not add the ginger or cinnamon! They were awesome! Took them to a work get together and they vanished!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone LOVED these (from my 5-year-old grandson, to my 85-year-old neighbor). Everyone LOVED these (from my 5-year-old grandson, to my 85-year-old neighbor). Will make them smaller next time, because the regular "whoopie pie" size is just too much. Didn't bother with the colored sugar around the edges.

These were very very good fresh, but by the next day they got terribly sticky and the crystallized ginger re-hydrated & became slightly overpowering. I would make again if I knew they would be eaten before they day was up.
