With Thanksgiving right around the corner I’m thinking of what we’re going to cook and prepare. Honestly I don’t even know if I’m hosting it. I do know that i want to make a few desserts. Rob likes my pumpkin cheesecake and the kids LOVE Pumpkin Dip.
So Shae and I experimented with a new recipe for pumpkin dip to see if it is good enough for Thanksgiving. It was. Adding everything into the mixer is always Shae’s job. This time though she learned how to use the can opener. She struggled a little but it’s another kitchen task she has down now.
Creamy Pumpkin Dip
- 8oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 15oz can pumpkin puree
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp clove
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
Over medium speed whip the cream cheese till soft and slowly add the sugars till blended.
Add pumpkin puree and spices and mix till combined, scraping down the sides as needed.
Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Serve with ginger snaps, graham crackers, apple slices, vanilla wafers or any other cookie or fruit.
