This Cream Cheese Pumpkin Dip Recipe makes a great fresh fruit dip for a Thanksgiving or fall snack idea when apples are plenty.
You can use other favourite fruits instead of, or in addition to apples. Pears are ripe around the same time as apples, so pears are a great idea too!
Even those who claim they do not like "pumpkin" will be sure to find out that they DO like pumpkin!
1 - 8 ounce package cream cheese
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 1/4 cups icing sugar
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, or to taste
1/4 tsp. ginger, or to taste

sliced apples, pears, or other prepared fruit
Add the cream cheese and the pumpkin puree to a medium size bowl, and beat together with an electric hand mixer, until well combined and smooth.
Gradually, add the icing sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and the ginger, and continue to mix until well combined.
If desired, to thin the fruit dip, add the whipping cream as needed, (optional).
Dip prepared apple slices, pears, and other fruit of your choice.
Refrigerate for a few hours prior to serving, and store any left-over dip in the refrigerator.
Did You Know?
Not only do apples taste amazing, but they are very nutritious too!
Apples are also a good source of a natural energy, containing natural carbohydrate, Vitamin C and potassium. An important element, "boron" is also found in apples.
These fruits are also a good source of soluble, natural dietary fibre.
Apples are also a good source of flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties. It is believed that most of this compound in apples is found in the peel.
When eating apples, and preparing them for fruit dips, it is wise to leave the peel on.
