Love Fall Recipes? Try These Next!
- Hand mixer or stand mixer- because this whips up so quickly either will work perfectly!
- Large mixing bowl
- Serving bowl or dish
cream cheese - Use the full fat variety for the best flavor! This needs to be at room temperature to create this dip. Leave it out on the counter for 30 minutes before you make this dip. If it is too cold it will give you a lumpy texture.
powdered sugar - This will add sweetness to the dip and dissolve better than granulated sugar to keep that creamy texture.
pumpkin purée - Make sure you are using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling because pumpkin pie filling has sugar and spices already added.
Greek yogurt or sour cream - This is an ideal way to help create the right texture for the dip and it will help balance the sweetness.
pumpkin pie spice - The best way to add flavor. Pumpkin pie spice has a warmth to it that is matched perfectly with this creamy dip. You can make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice or buy it premade at the store.
maple extract or vanilla extract - This is another way to balance the flavors and sweeten the pumpkin mixture.
Add softened cream cheese to a large bowl with half of the powdered sugar. Use a hand or stand mixer at a medium speed to beat the cream cheese with the sugar until fluffy. I slowly add the powdered sugar so that it doesn't go flying everywhere when I'm mixing it.
Add the remaining sugar, yogurt, pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, and maple extract. Mix well until everything is incorporated. Use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
Cover the pumpkin dip and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. This will give the flavors time to meld together.
Serve pumpkin dip with gingersnaps, apple slices, pretzels, and graham crackers.
This fall dessert dip can be served with ginger snap cookies, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, pretzels, and any sort of fruit and chocolate.
It is perfect served on its own as a dip but you could easily add it to a dessert charcuterie board with a selection of things to dip into it. Serve at a Halloween party, as a Thanksgiving dessert, or just when you want a delicious snack that you know the whole family will love.
This dip can be left out for a couple of hours but any leftovers will need to be transferred to an airtight container and refrigerated. You can store the pumpkin dip in the refrigerator for up to five days.
It isn’t recommended to freeze this dip because it doesn’t thaw well. However, it is so easy to make a fresh batch when you need it.
- Make the pumpkin dip the day before and refrigerate overnight for the best flavors.
- Bring cream cheese to room temperature before making the dip recipe.
