• Pumpkin Pie Dip

    It is time,  you know. As hard as it is to believe, the holiday season is upon us and that means it’s time to start to think about all things pumpkin although I have to tell you that this is one recipe that finds its way into our lives throughout the year.

    PUMPKIN PIE DIP

    If you are like me, you very often find yourself wondering what in the world you are going to take to the next social, snack supper, get together, or whatever you happen to call those rather impromptu gatherings of close friends. This one seems to be a hit each time I make it, and I can make it in minutes!

    Ingredients

    8 Ounces Cream Cheese
    2 Cups Powdered Sugar
    15 Ounces Pumpkin Pie Puree* (adjust to suit your taste)
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, or to taste
    ½ Teaspoon Ginger, or to taste

    If I were you, I’d use half of the can and then taste to see just how much more pumpkin you want. I personally use a little over 3/4 of the can.

    *I have actually made this recipe with pumpkin pie filling when our grocery store does not have the puree. Just know that you will have to then adjust the other ingredients to suit your taste.

    Preparation

    1. Cream the cheese and sugar together until well mixed. Of  course, this is easier if you remember to let your cheese reach room temp before you start.

    2. Add pie filling and continue to mix.

    3. Mix in spices.

    4. I personally like to chill before serving.

    Of course, you can be as creative as you please with what to serve with pumpkin pie dip. Apple slices, vanilla wafers, ginger snaps, strawberries….If you are serving many, I would suggest that you double the recipe. This goes fast!

      Since you’re adding sugar, cinnamon, and ginger, I think you might mean pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling, but I could definitely be wrong about that. Could you clarify, please? I looked for the matching asterisk, but didn’t find one.

      Sounds wonderful! I discovered it a little late for this year, tho.

        I’m sorry. I should have been more clear. I actually use whatever I can get in our small grocery store and just vary the other ingredients to suit our taste. However, I would suggest using the puree the first time you make this. AND, I actually do prefer the puree. I just can’t always get it here. Thanks so much, and I will point this out on the recipe.
