Pumpkin Dip I

I love pumpkin as I’ve said many times before.  The sad part is, The Boy, is not a fan.  So I have to find other places & occasions to make pumpkin goodies.  I had a family reunion to attend the day after returning from a 7 day vacation in California.  Needless to say I wanted something EASY to make for it.  I had seen some pumpkin dip recipes, and I found two versions, one that involved marshmallow fluff, and one that didn’t.  I decided I’d try the both.  So far, I’ve made the non-fluff version.  I had seen a great recipe on Annie’s Eats, but ended doing something in between hers, and this one, to use more pumpkin & less sugar.  I served it with ginger snaps, apple slices, graham cracker sticks & apple chips.  Here it is, and let me tell you, I got asked about about the recipe multiple times.

    I made a dip very similar to this only it was heavier on the cream cheese and less on the pumpkin (I was using leftover) so I used it as a spread for bagels/english muffins. It was great!

    I think I FINALLY found another blogger who loves pumpkin as much as I do!
