I found this on another web site, and immediately ran to the supermarket for the fixings. I used homemade Amish Gingersnaps from the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia which made them even better. Easy, delicious.

These were NOT good, in fact, threw most of them in garbage. This made 18 regular sized cupcakes ... not 12 as stated in recipe. Gingersnap cookies were wet and soggy and cup cakes were not sweet enough. Will not make again.
- 12 gingersnap cookies
- 2 1⁄2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree, i use libby
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar, i use granulated
- 2 large eggs, i use egg beaters
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 (8 ounce) containerfrozeen whipped topping, thawed (I use Cool Whip Lite)
