Pumpkin Dip

This recipe is short and very sweet.

2 cups pumpkin puree
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (room temperature)
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix everything, cover and chill overnight in the fridge.

Serve with ginger snap cookies, apples and/or pears.

OK, OK.....I know, I know. The holidays are coming and you don't want rich calorie enhanced food all around you. You're looking for something a bit more healthy, you nut. (no nuts are used in the making of this health nut version)

Omit the brown sugar and serve with sliced apples and pears. Yay! Now stop hugging that tree and come over here and try this. Add a table spoon at a time of brown sugar if you want it a bit sweeter but otherwise ENJOY!

  1. Never really been a big dip fan, kinda stick to French onion or nothing....but this stuff is great! Lots of flavor and is perfect with the gingersnaps.
