Spiced Pumpkin Dip

Yes, that’s right, it’s another pumpkin recipe. It’s an obsession and I can’t help it. I have been dying to try this recipe for some time but I knew it would be a dangerous idea to have a bowl of pumpkin mixed with cream cheese and powdered sugar and only me to eat it. Tonight I had a end-of-rotation get together for my OB/GYN classmates so I thought that would be a good opportunity to taste this dip and still have other people to help eat it. I made it with honey wheat bread warm out of the oven. The combination was delicious and the dip was definitely a hit. This recipe is just irresistible because it is so simple to make (only 4 ingredients!) and it tastes soooo good.

Spiced Pumpkin Dip
½ cup canned pumpkin puree
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

In a large mixing bowl, combine canned pumpkin, cream cheese, powdered sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well. Spoon into a decorative bowl.

    What an easy recipe! We have an annual pumpkin carving party with our friends, so I’ll be sure to serve this at it this year!

    Simply fantastic! I LOVE everything pumpkin– including this recipe! It was so easy to make (which is a plus for this domestically challenged young wife). I couldn’t stop licking the bowl! Do you have a good pumpkin bread recipe? I haven’t been able to find one that I REALLY like.

  • Erin K.

    one more thing! I wanted to suggest using those graham cracker sticks for dipping. Yummmm!

  • I’ve had this bookmarked for awhile and I’m thinking I can’t hold off any longer. Between my hubby’s birthday party on Sunday and us hosting T-day Thursday I think it’s going to get made this weekend! I even have some of those graham sticks leftover from some other dip I made last weekend!!!

    I make this every year and serve with gingersnaps! YUM! Everyone always loves it. My recipe uses the whole can of pumpkin and includes a couple other fall spices. But I started using yours this year since it makes a much more reasonable volume of dip…love this recipe too! Also, I serve mine in a hollowed out small pumpkin!

    This is also great using gingersnaps and apple slices as “dippers.”
