I love pumpkin pie, so it was no big surprise to me that this Pumpkin Pie Dip recipe has become my new holiday favorite. This creamy, fluffy dip is easy to make and perfect for Thanksgiving and holiday parties. Serve with sliced apples or pears, cinnamon graham crackers, gingersnaps, holiday breads and more.
A small pumpkin, hollowed out with a Good Cook Pumpkin Scoop (available at Walmart), is the ideal way to present this dish. I shopped every grocery store in town for pumpkins with no luck.
My backup idea was to bake a homemade Gingersnap Bowl and let everyone serve themselves from there. I used this Gingersnap Cookie recipe and a glass baking bowl…it worked! From cookie sheets to cake and loaf pans, Good Cook Bakeware has got everything you need to bake up holiday magic in your kitchen.
Pumpkin Pie Dip Recipe
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin (or fresh, cooked)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 cup Cool Whip, thawed
- Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl until smooth.
- Add pumpkin, yogurt, and pumpkin pie spice to cream cheese mixture and mix well.
- Fold in the Cool Whip.
Serve with sliced apples or pears, cinnamon graham crackers or gingersnaps. Store in refrigerator.
DIY Gingersnap Cookie Bowl
Use your favorite gingersnap recipe to create the cookie dough. Line a small glass baking bowl with wax paper. Press a thin layer of gingersnap cookie dough on the bottom and sides of the baking bowl. Bake in the oven as directed for 15-20 minutes, or until the cookie bowl is thoroughly baked. Remove from oven and allow to cool until hardened.
Tip: The cookie dough will puff up as it bakes, so remember to use a thin layer, especially on the bottom of the dish. I actually removed my gingersnap bowl from the oven about halfway through the bake time and carefully pressed it back into the bowl shape I wanted, then put it back into the oven so it could finish baking.
