For the Love of Pumpkin . . .

harvestscene1I’ve never met a pumpkin I didn’t like! Seeing them everywhere lately has my mouth watering for all things pumpkin – like pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies! When writing my grocery list earlier, I made sure to include the ingredients I’ll need to bake a couple of loaves of pumpkin bread later in the week . . .

For today though, I want to share a pumpkin recipe that I’ve just discovered. It not only sounds delicious, but has a prep time of just 10 minutes. Ya gotta love that!

This recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens website, but I’ll include it here for your convenience.

Ok, ttyl. I’m off to add cream cheese to the shopping list. 😉

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread

· 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
· 1/4 cup sugar
· 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
· 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Serving suggestions:
Spread on bagels, gingersnaps, english muffins, graham cracker sticks, etc.

  1. I am going to try this one!

    My daughter is NOT domestic. She prefers someone else to cook, though she is a great house cleaner. But she makes a killer pumpkin roll. I have NEVER had better. I used to do stuff like that before I went back to a 40 hour job. Now you have my mouth watering for something pumpkin!!

  2. I love all things pumpkin too! I can’t cut into mine to cook with untill I’m done using them in decorations though! Have company coming for Tday, so may have to sacrifice one for a pie 🙁 but ohhhh we all love that pie! I make a pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting every year…yummm! Also, made a pumpkin soup one year…different and yummy.

  3. Crystal…This sounds so yummy! I’m copying this one also. I love all things pumpkin too! =D Thank you Sweetie!
