Spiced Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps

Spiced Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps ~ This easy to assemble dip is full of the traditional flavors of fall.  It's like eating a pumpkin pie, but in dip form. 

Way, way back when, one of my girlfriends served a ~ Spiced Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps ~ at her Halloween party.  I was instantly smitten with the pumpkin pie flavor of the dip & I've always been a sucker for ginger snaps.  I haven't made her recipe in years, but tonight I'm going to a Harvest Party with a potluck cookout & bonfire, so I decided to make it once again.  It's real-time cooking in my kitchen tonight.  I'm just about off to the party... hope the rain holds off until after the wild hayride.  :)

Spiced Pumpkin Dip with Ginger Snaps
makes approx. 2 cups dip

  • 4 ounces fat-free, low-fat or traditional cream cheese, softened  (1/2 of an 8 ounce brick)
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar  
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt (optional - makes it a bit tangy-ier/creamier)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • Ginger Snap cookies

Place all ingredients in a food processor & blend until smooth and creamy.  Serve with ginger snaps or any of the following ~ sliced apples, pretzels, graham crackers, oatmeal cookies, vanilla wafers, bagels or anything else you can think of...  Maybe even try a dollop in your coffee, with a little creamer, for a homemade Spiced Pumpkin Latte...  Oh, yeah!  :)
