Tailgate Recipe - Pumpkin Pie Dip

I keep catching myself forgetting that our game this week is on Thursday night. Having a Clemson football game on a Thursday night in the middle of the season is fun -- it makes the week so much easier to bear. Instead of waiting anxiously for Saturday, I only have to wait until Thursday!

How I will feel on Friday may be a different story. :)

Typically for Thursday night games, all of our friends gather at someone's house to watch the game together on tv. All of us bring snacks for everyone to munch on during the game.

Since Fall is {finally} in the air and Halloween is right around the corner, I really like the idea of this Pupmkin Pie inspired dip - something different from your typical salsa and vege dips. And it sounds delicious! I can't wait to try it.

Pumpkin Pie Dip

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup frozen whipped cream, thawed
Gingersnap cookies, apples, or cinnamon graham cracker sticks

  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Add in pumpkin, sour cream, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and ginger. Mix well.
  • Fold in the thawed whipped cream.
  • Serve with green apples, graham cracker sticks, or gingersnaps.
  • Store in refrigerator.
