Harvest Pumpkin Dip


I am WAY into Fall right now, and Fall to me equals...pumpkin! I got this recipe from my husband's cousin Jessica. It is so yummy and great with apples and pears. I have used light cream cheese in this, and it works just fine. Make sure that your cream cheese is at room temperature.


1 8-oz. package cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground ginger
Apple and pear slices
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Gradually add the pumpkin, pie spice, vanilla and ginger; beat until smooth. Serve with fruit. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 3 ½ cups. (if you use light cream cheese, there are 2.5 Weight Watchers pts per ¼ cup)

Hi Aubri. I just have to say that I love your recipe blog. (Of course your family one is nice too, but sometimes it's nice to have something that is fun and just for you...) Anyways I love to cook and I'm always on the look out for great recipes. Plus fall recipes are totally my favorite! I can't wait to try this pumpkin dip. YUM!

I love pumpkin anything! Pumpkin roll, pie, cheesecake, ice cream, but I've never had dip so I'll have to try it. I even have pumpkin bubble bath. Don't worry, I don't eat that.
