Pumpkin Pie Fruit Dip

Easy, different and addictive.
Great for Thanksgiving or Fall parties.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • apple slices and/or gingersnaps

Or, to cut sweetness, increase cinnamon, decrease sugar and substitute pumpkin pie puree for pumpkin pie filling.

Directions:

  1. Beat cream cheese and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Add pie filling, cinnamon, and ginger, beating well.
  3. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Makes 3 cups.  Awesome with apple slices.  Delicious with gingersnaps, too, but a little too sweet (even for me, a certified sugar-aholic).  I found several versions of this recipe at food.com.
