Harvest Pumpkin Dip

I’ve seen many many variations of this dip in magazines and on blogs over the last couple of years, but this was my first time to try it out.  I needed a quick snack for our late afternoon art playgroup yesterday, so I served up this Harvest Pumpkin Dip with apple and pear slices.  This dip would also be great with graham crackers or ginger snaps.

Harvest Pumpkin Dip

from Taste of Home

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. (Picky Apple note: Be sure to follow this step instead of just dumping everything in the bowl like I did!) Gradually add the pumpkin, pie spice, vanilla and ginger; beat until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.  Serve with fruit. Refrigerate leftovers.

    This sounds really good! I’ve seen something sort of like this with peanut butter as the main ingredient and not pumpkin, but pumpkin sounds wonderful!

    Looking forward to giving this a try!
