Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Hello everyone! This post is in honor of National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day which is celebrated on October 21st every year.

Cheesecake is a real favorite of mine. If it's not to heavy on the spices, I can easily eat 2 slices. Each slice has to have whipped cream topping too. But this post is not about cheesecake is it- Nope- Today I've decided to celebrate this holiday with a pumpkin cheesecake dip instead of a cheesecake cake/pie. Below is a recipe adapted from Taste of Home.
1 brick (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 – 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (optional)
gingersnaps and/or fresh fruit for serving

Using a mixer, beat cream cheese and pumpkin puree until smooth. Add powdered sugar (1/2 cup at a time), pumpkin pie spice, and ginger until combined. If your dip is too thick, add 1 – 2 tablespoons of heavy cream to thin it out. Keep in refrigerator and serve cold. fakeginger
Happy National Cheesecake Day everyone! Remember this recipe for your Halloween, Autumn or Thanksgiving get-to-gether. Or treat the kids for a after school snack. If you've tried this recipe before, what did you serve it with? Cookies? Apples? Or? Let us know your suggestions.

Love this, and I'd dip dark chocolate biscotti into this dip! That's because I'm :-)

Janet biscotti is a great idea for dipping. I've made this recipe a few times but never thought about biscotti. Dark chocolate and pumpkin would be great together! I'll have to try it the next time. I bet you have a chocolate biscotti dipped in dark chocolate recipe somewhere on your website. Do you?

Louise I just read your post and that swirl cheesecake recipe looks fantastic. I'm a sucker for cheesecake.
