Pumpkin pie dip is what I want to be munching on all fall! It’s so simple to throw together and always a crowd pleaser! Just a handful of ingredients and it’s perfect served with Nilla wafers, ginger snaps, graham crackers, or apple slices.
My husband is a cheesecake fiend. He loves the stuff and I love him, so making him cheesecake is something I like to do.
Of course, traditional cheesecake isn’t necessarily hard to make. But, you do need a few tools and a bit of time and it just turns into a whole thing, you know? Sometimes you don’t want to do the whole thing.
So today I’m not here to talk about baking cheesecakes. I’m here to talk about NOT baking cheesecakes!
This pumpkin pie dip recipe is perfect for any cheesecake lover in your life, because it is so darn easy and it tastes like pumpkin pie and cheesecake had a baby.
How to make pumpkin dip:
This pumpkin cream cheese dip takes just 5 simple ingredients: pure pumpkin puree, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice.
You’ll just beat everything together in a mixing bowl. You can either serve it up right away or pop it in the fridge to chill for a bit.
In our house, we’re very picky about our cheesecake. It pretty much has to have a graham cracker crust or it’s not considered a proper cheesecake.
Oreo crusts can sometimes sneak by us (especially on this cookies and cream cheesecake), but mostly it just has to be that classic graham cracker crust!
Cinnamon graham crackers make a great vehicle for eating this pumpkin dip recipe, but we really like ginger snaps, Nilla wafers, and Biscoff cookies with this one too. They all work great, so use whatever you like!
Honestly, this stuff would probably be pretty delicious spread on a toasty bagel for breakfast.
Give this one a try and let me know what you think! If you make this recipe, be sure to share it on Instagram and tag it #bunsinmyoven so I can feature it on my Insta account! 🙂
