of FOOD! I don't know about you but this time of year always gets me excited about trying new recipes and sharing them with friends and family. You will probably be seeing a few more recipes than normal around here for the next two months. I promise, as always, they will be EASY.
I have been wanting to make something with pumpkin. I am not a baker so that narrows it down a lot! I found this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread I'm going to try first. It's simple and has my favorite holiday ingredient: cream cheese. Perfect for a holiday brunch or overnight guests.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread
- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Beat all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Makes 1-1/2 cups (24, 1-tablespoon servings). Serve with warm bagels.
