I know, I know…probably at this point you are probably on pumpkin overload. If you have a social media account, that’s probably all it is inundated with!
But I came across this recipe that is really good, and the best part of it is, is that it is suggested that you eat it with apple and/or pear slices! I mean a dip where it’s recommended that you eat fruit with it? Heck yeah, I am down for that! Also, if you are not totally into the taste of pumpkin, that’s okay because it is not super strong in this recipe. But this dip is good and may become a fall staple in the Random Path household 😉
Spiced Pumpkin Dip
- 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 8-oz package of cream cheese softened
- 3 Tablespoons maple syrup, or more to taste
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon**
- 2 apples sliced
- 2 pears sliced
In a bowl combine pumpkin, cream cheese, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Whisk until blended. Serve with apples and pears. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to three days.
**The recipe called for half of a teaspoon but I used the wrong spoon and ended up putting a whole teaspoon. It didn’t make a difference in any way. The dip was still gobbled up!
