Summer Recipes: Sweet Pumpkin Dip

Sweet pumpkin dip goes great with chunks of fruit

To ease the transition of summer into fall, this week's recipe takes something that's about to come into season -- pumpkins -- and mix it with the season's best fruit: apple slices.

Or...serve it with ginger snaps or vanilla wafers.

Sweet pumpkin dip comes from verybestbaking.com and takes only 5 minutes to make. Hollow out a little pumpkin to serve it in if you're feeling especially Martha Stewart-ish.

Sweet Pumpkin Dip


  • 2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
  • 2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger


Beat cream cheese and pumpkin in large mixer bowl until smooth. Add sugar, cinnamon and ginger; mix thoroughly. Cover; refrigerate for 1 hour.

NOTE: For a lower-fat version of this recipe, substitute light cream cheese (Neufchâtel) for cream cheese.
