Pumpkin Pie Dip (A 5 Minute Recipe)

September 14, 2012

Pumpkin Pie Dip – a simple 5 minute perfectly pumpkiny dip that is has just the right amount of sweet and spice. It’s fluffy, creamy and yes even dreamy. Basically it’s pure goodness!

Pumpkin Pie Dip

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.

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 and this has the perfect blend!

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