Recipe Swap: Pumpkin Pie Dip

It's that time again!

Another Recipe Swap is here. The theme for this swap is blogger's choice. I was assigned the blog Does Not Cook Well With Others.  It was very hard to decide what to make, but I knew I needed something easy and quick considering I could possibly be delivering my son at anytime.  I have been pretty obsessed with pumpkin pie over the past few weeks and have been wanting to try making a dip. I saw a recipe for pumpkin pie dip and decided that now was as good a time as any! I scaled down the sugar because 2 cups seemed like it might be way too sweet for me. I was very happy that I decreased the amount because the sweetness was perfect for me. I actually made this before Thanksgiving and we had it with a few other appetizers. My family loved the flavors (and the extra pumpkin pie fix!). Thank you for a great recipe. Another big thanks to Sarah at A Taste of Home Cooking for organizing the swaps!


Ingredients

2/3 cup pumpkin puree
8 oz reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Graham Crackers and Fruit for Dipping


Instructions

Using a hand mixer (or stand, if you choose), mix pumpkin, spices and cream cheese till smooth. Slowly add in sugar. Allow dip to rest in the fridge for about an hour. Serve with graham crackers and sliced fruit.
