Warm Pumpkin Dip

by GettingFreedom on September 24, 2009

Fall brings on an influx of family and friend gatherings for us. I have a really hard time gathering, and not bringing some form of food, and this dish is just perfect for those moments. You can’t have one without the other, can you?
I had this dip a few years back at Thanksgiving. It was amongst a whole table of hors d’oerves, and I just couldn’t take myself from it. It exudes all things fall. From it’s color, to the pumpkin and cinnamon, and since it is served warm, it is nice and cozy, too! :) Ahhh..Comfort Food.
I have since lost the original recipe, but I am almost certain that this is just about as close to “the real deal” as you can get!

*Ahem. Please forgive the poor quality photo and the sea of white. It’s obvious I’m not a photograher, or a sprinkler.*

Warm Pumpkin Dip

Roughly 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree (or 1 can pumpkin)
8 ounces cream cheese; softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (if you do not have this spice, use a combination of allspice, ginger and ground clove)
Sprinkling of Cinnamon

In mixing bowl combine the powdered sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Add in the pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Mix thoroughly. Pour into a pie pan and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Serve with graham crackers. We like to use the small, graham cracker sticks. Perfect for dipping!
