True story: this might be my favorite fall thing ever. Well, pumpkin lattes might be my first favorite, but this is a close second.
This is a really simple pumpkin dip that I like to make
The good thing about this is that you can really tweak to be exactly how you want it. If you don't want a super pumpkin-y flavor, you could only do half a can of pumpkin, and you can alter the cinnamon, etc to suit you.
One can (15 ounce) pumpkin
One (eight ounce) block softened cream cheese (if you forget to take this out early to soften it, you can microwave it for about seven seconds per side)
Two cups confectioner's sugar
A teaspoon-ish of cinnamon sugar
A teaspoon-ish of brown sugar
A sprinkle-ish of pumpkin pie spice
(All the best recipes have "ish" in the instructions, right?
1) Combine the cream cheese and sugar with a hand mixer. I keep it on the lowest speed until it gets creamy, and then I turn it up a bit.
2) Once they’re combined, gradually add the pumpkin. Once again, start slow and increase speed as ingredients combine.
3) Sprinkle in spices. Start with the recommended amounts, and then go from there.
4) Try your hardest not to eat the entire thing in one sitting.
And that's it! I mostly eat this with pita chips, but it's also really good on bagels (duh.) Other people tell me it's also good on vegetables like celery or whatever, but I can't vouch for that.
If you end up making it, let me know how you like it!!!
