This week I am featuring recipes I've made out of pumpkin. It certainly is that time of year!! (and apparently its spelled with a Z)
I'd like to say that I love the look of pumpkins around the house, but not necessarily the taste of ONLY pumpkin... which is why I've been on the hunt for THE best recipes that use pumpkin!! Not anything like pumpkin pie (that is WAY too much pumpkin for me!) I will explain the recipes and AFTER the recipe I will comment on them:

Pumpkin Pie Fruit Dip
1 15oz can of pumpkin puree
1 8oz brick of cream cheese
1 - 2 C powdered sugar
1 TBL pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp cinnamon
Mix all the above ingredients together in a large bowl.  If you have a mixer, use it so you can get all the lumps out, you want it nice and smooth. 
You can serve it with apple slices, and vanilla wafers, or graham crackers like I did ... really ANYTHING you would want to dip into pumpkin pie! 

This tasted just like pumpkin pie. have I mentioned that I hate pumpkin pie? well they loved it at work.. see:

I have seen other recipes that use cool whip.

Oh my honey you are too funny. The only pumpkin pie I eat is the one's made from the Libby's can of pumpkin. Those are so good the recipe is on the can but otherwise I don't like pumpkin pie either. hahaha
I think nothing I just said made any sense.
Strange I made pumpkin spice cookies tonight from a package I bought at Target. It calls for a stick of butter, water and egg. Their not bad cookies.
Anyway enough of my ramblings.
Just came by to say I love you
