Pumpkin Party Recipe!

pumpkin pie cream cheese dip

I did a little baking over the weekend… I was attempting to make my favorite cookie recipe of all time gluten-free BUT super simple (AKA without 5,000 strange and wacky ingredients that cost $15 each and can only be located at Whole Foods).  But unfortunately, I couldn’t make it work.  Maybe next weekend?


So, while I was “mourning” my cookies (you know, by eating the leftover batter out of the bowl), I decided to whip up this pumpkin dip.  I make this almost every year for a holiday party.  It’s pretty straightforward and truly delicious. 


The best part?  You pair it with green apples and gingersnaps.  Trust me – these two things taste amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing when dipped in this, well, dip.


Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Dip




  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature (makes it easier to combine)
  • 15 ounces canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons DIY Pumpkin Spice or pre-made pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses (not necessary but a good addition)




  • Using an electric mixer, combine all ingredients until lumps are gone.  This will take a while – about 15 minutes.
  • Chill for an hour or so before serving.


Also tastes epic on top of oatmeal.  I’m just sayin’…

    Ain’t no party like a pumpkin party! 🙂 My local grocery store makes a similar dip that I devour when they put it out with ginger snaps. I guess it’s time I made my own instead of just hoarding the samples. 😉

    While I love pumpkin everything, pumpkin + cream cheese may be one of my favourite combinations of all time. Mmm must try, thanks!
