Pumpkin Dip

As you know, I am an avid pumpkin lover.  I begin to crave it in August, and it is in full force by October.  For our tailgating party, we made a tasty fall finger food.  Pumpkin Dip.  Its simple, easy, and everyone seems to love it.  With Halloween only a day away, a pumpkin recipe seems completely necessary.  I did make pumpkin seeds last night for a pumpkin tasting at school, however, T and I both did not realize that they were put in the oven, and lets just say... they were a tad too crispy! So, they are not making an appearance on the blog!

6 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin (or if you made your own... more power to you!)
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Apples for Dipping (we also used grapes and gingersnap cookies)


1.  Put all of the ingredients in a food processor.  If you do not have a food processor, you could mix these together with a hand blender.  However, you would have to wait until the cream cheese is soft so that it can mix together.

2.  Blend the ingredients together until they are all incorporated and the dip is soft and creamy.

We served our pumpkin dip with apples, grapes, and gingersnap cookies! Yum!

Until next time...
