Pumpkin Pie Dip


 

This pumpkin platter is from Mikasa, before they closed their outlet store.  The cookies are chewy and spicy!!  You could make a sandwich cookie with the dip in the middle and then freeze.

  
Years ago, a good friend shared this dip recipe with me.  This makes a lot of dip, so it's great for a party.  You could also use the leftovers  and put in a  gingersnap or graham cracker pie shell. The dip is soooo creamy and perfectly spicy  and goes great with gingersnaps or apple slices.  I made the Ginger Crinkle Cookies that my bloggy buddy, Lynn,  shared from happierthanapiginmud.blogspot.com/.  Lynn got the original recipe from  another bloggy friend, Lorraine at  gratefulprayerthankfulheart.blogspot.com/.  These cookies are perfect for this dip. Thanks Lynn and Lorraine!   I hope you try both the cookies and the dip recipes soon.  If you don't feel like making cookies, the gingersnaps from World Market are great, too.

My favorite good witch, from Homegoods, is presiding over the table to whisk away the crumbs, after the party is over!  How about some witch's brew to go with the cookies?  The napkins are from Target.  The tablecloth was on clearance from Kohl's.


 

A Cinderella pumpkin serves as a pedestal for the platter.


For the dip:

1 30 oz. can Pumpkin Pie MIX (not pure pumpkin)
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 16 oz container of frozen whipped topping, thawed

Beat the softened cream cheese in a large bowl.  Add the pumpkin pie filling mix and mix well.  Fold in the thawed frozen mixed topping. 

Serve with gingersnaps and/or apple slices.

                                                                 On the Menu Monday

  7. Hi Kitty
    The dip sounds good and I'm going to check out the ginger crinkle cookies recipe. I always buy my gingersnaps, could be time to start making my own.
    Always nice to visit with you for tea each week.
