While I rarely write to a non-wedding topic, these pumpkin recipes have been at the forefront of my little fall brain! I absolutely love pumpkin. Whether it's my cinnamon pumpkin candle, pumpkins on the front porch or the delicious pumpkin dip (see following recipe) I make during the holidays, I simply love all things pumpkin. For today, Monday (a rough day of the week for many), I hope you enjoy these pumpkin treats!
(I don't know where I got the recipe, but I've tweaked it over the years. Variations are all over the place: Cooks.com, All Recipes, etc.)
4 oz cream cheese, softened
5 oz vanilla pudding (1 box)
15 oz canned pumpkin
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
16 oz cool whip, softened
Mix all ingredients and serve with gingersnaps, apples and pretzels. I also think it's good schmeared on a sugar cookie!
