Pumpkin Pie Dip

Pumpkin Pie Dip
I love all things pumpkin flavored such as cookies, smoothies, latte's, muffins and now dip! I think this is a genius idea! It's so quick to cooking required! Just mix all the ingredients together and chill until ready to serve! Then dig in to this heavenly creamy pumpkin dessert with your favorite cookies or crackers. I used graham crackers at first. Then I tried this dip with unsalted saltine crackers. Both were very good, but I think I liked the unsalted crackers better because the graham crackers were a little too sweet with this dip.

I found my new favorite pumpkin creation on a food blog called...
The Cookie Rookie. She made her pumpkin pie dip in cute little individual mini pie crusts and served them with vanilla wafers for dipping. Another very smart idea! I like the way she thinks! Go check out her recipes. She has tons of delicious things going on over there.

I made her recipe as written but cut the recipe in half because I didn't realize how much I would love it. Of course I regretted that choice as soon as I tasted this dip. Needless to say, that dip was gone within 24 hours and eaten by only 2 and my hubby! I think it's suppose to serve at least 6...Ooopsy!

 I used homemade pumpkin puree instead of canned because that's all I had. I also used my homemade pumpkin pie spice blend because I'm too cheap to spend $7 on store bought when I have those individual spices in my cabinet already! The link to my pumpkin pie spice blend is in my ingredients list below,  along with the link to homemade pumpkin puree. Give this recipe a try, but double the recipe as I wrote it, if you want to share it with more than 2 people...*smiles*
