Pumpkin Pie Dip (A 5 Minute Recipe)

09.14.2012

Some of you may be thinking, what is with this girl? Does she only eat pumpkin? I know I’ve posted a lot of pumpkin recipes lately, but it’s just that time of year =). Also the other reason, I always buy the huge can of pumpkin puree because I can get it for the price of what the small can costs. So why would I buy the small can? It just wouldn’t make sense. I hate wasting though, so I buy the large can and then I can get two, sometimes even three different pumpkin recipes out of it (unless of course I’m making pumpkin pie).

I saw this Pumpkin Pie Dip floating around Pinterest so I thought, ooh yes I must try that! I liked that this recipe didn’t use cool whip as some of the pumpkin pie dips do. I changed a few things from the original recipe. I thought it needed a little more pumpkin flavor so I added an additional 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (to the 1 cup listed).  I omitted the pumpkin pie spice and rather just increased the cinnamon, added nutmeg and cloves then left the ginger as listed, then I added a little caramel sauce of course. I love pumpkin and caramel. I love anything with caramel.

This simple 5 minute dip is has just the right amount of sweet and spice, it’s fluffy, creamy and yes even dreamy. Basically it’s pure goodness. It tastes so much like pumpkin pie (different texture obviously, but same amazing flavor). So when you want a quick dessert with all the flavors of pumpkin pie that everyone will love, then this is definitely what you’ll want to make. You’ll quickly lose track of just how much you’ve actually eaten. Enjoy and Happy Fall!

Recipe Notes

For cleaner edges on your graham crackers, simply cut them along indentations with a sharp knife rather than breaking them into individual pieces.

    • Jaclyn: It just depends on whether you like pumpkin and apple flavors together – not really one I prefer, but with the caramel it might make it doable. Let me know if you try it :). October 7, 2015 at 11:55pm Reply
