Beat whipping cream and sugar until peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese, pumpkin , and pumpkin pie spice; beat just until filling is smooth.

Line bottom of 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides with 1 package ladyfingers, overlapping and crowding to fit. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons rum. Spread half of filling over ladyfingers.

Repeat with second package ladyfingers, remaining 2 tablespoons rum, and remaining filling. Smooth. Sprinkle with crushed amaretti cookies. Chill overnight.

To unmold, run knife around inside edge of pan.
