Let’s Take a Dip, Into Some Delicious Pumpkin Spice Dip
I love creamy rich decadent desserts, and cheesecake is one of my tops. I’m picky about it though. I love no-bake cheesecake way more than I like baked ones. They are so light, fluffy and creamy. Don’t get me wrong, I’d never kick a cheesecake off my table, but I’m inspired by cool creaminess.
Years ago I picked up a recipe for this dip and have developed it into my own creation. It’s not a lot of ingredients, but I think this is really my best version.
Pumpkin Spice Dip.
Here is what you’ll need.
I just want to note, that this filling would make an awesomely delicious pie as well! Either a graham cracker crust or if you know the pie will be eaten the same day, a regular pie shell. Just make it as shown and fill the shell, voila! delicious and easy pie to bring along for Thanksgiving! Believe me, it will be a HUGE hit!
On to the recipe.. this is a double recipe, you can easily halve it for a smaller dessert. But do not halve it if you are doing a pie, it will make a very full impressive pie.
2 blocks of cream cheese- I used 1/3 fat, you are absolutely welcome to use Neufchatal cheese or full fat, whatever tickles your fancy- softened
1 cup powdered sugar- or 10x sugar, or confectioners sugar. Whatever you know it as… you could, if you must use regular white sugar, but believe me, the powdered version makes a creamier dip ( no sugar crunching)
1 big tub of cool whip
1 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
something to scoop the dip. We love ginger snaps, use graham crackers, shortbread cookies, or just a spoon!
First, cream your cream cheese in a mixer. a handheld one will work fine if you don’t have a stand mixer.
Once you have that lightened and beaten a bit, add the pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Then mix the spices well into the cheese.
Scrape the bowl and add a scoop of the cool whip to lighten up the mixture.
Then go ahead and add the powdered sugar. One cup does not make this a super sweet mix, just the right sweetness I think.
Try to use a scoop/cup type of measuring cup, the minions have been slowly taking mine for pet food scoops and I guess I’m going to be in the market for a new set since they took my last one. Although the bright side is you get to the inside of the cup.
Now go ahead and add your cool whip, the rest of it, to your mix.
Scrape as needed, and mix until you no longer see cool whip separate and it is well combined.
Scoop into the container of choice, then serve.
Enjoy, nom nom nom….
