Need an Easy Dish for Fall Gatherings? Pumpkin Dip to the Rescue!

It's that time of year, again! Harvest parties, Thanksgiving dinners, and various other gatherings. You might be invited to several of these gatherings.You may be at a loss for time, and/or ideas. An old standby that I like to make that is inexpensive, fast and easy to prepare, and is always popular with guests and friends. I'm talking about a pumpkin dip. 




I demonstrated this pumpkin dip last year at the Webb City Farmers Market, and even had the pleasure of joining Carol Parker on "Cooking With Carol", today, on Living Well on KSN16. Here is the segment:



This is a very basic recipe, and is great served alongside gingersnaps and graham crackers. Be sure to have the cream cheese softened, to facilitate a smoother, creamier consistency.


Pumpkin Dip

8oz. cream cheese, softened
2 C. powdered sugar
15oz. can solid pack pumpkin (pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix)
1 Tblsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tblsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. frozen orange juice concentrate

1.  In a medium bowl, cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar together, until smooth. 

2.  Gradually add the pumpkin. 

3.  Stir in the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and orange juice concentrate, until smooth and  
     well incorporated. 

4.  Place into serving vessel and chill before serving, at least one hour. 

5.  Serve with graham crackers, gingersnaps, and/or any other item you would prefer. 

Makes approximately 4 Cups of dip.
