Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip

A few weeks ago I went out to buy some canned pumpkin. Unfortunately, when I got home from the store, I realized that I had bought canned pumpkin pie mix instead of pumpkin puree. Doh.

I’ve been racking my brain trying to think of things to do with canned pumpkin pie mix other than make a pumpkin pie. Here is what I came up with:

1. Mix a spoonful into your oatmeal
2. Add some to your Greek yogurt
3. This tasty dessert treat, pumpkin pie cheesecake dip.

This was so easy. It took me only 5 minutes to whip together and it was really, really good. Sweet and creamy like cheesecake but spiced with all the flavors of fall pumpkin pie.

What do you do with pumpkin pie mix other than make a pie?

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake Dip
8 oz. cream cheese (room temp.)
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons pumpkin pie mix
3 tablespoons milk
Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

1. With an electric mixer combine your cream cheese and powdered sugar (add more sugar if it’s not sweet enough for you) until smooth and fully combined.
2. Add your tablespoons of pumpkin pie mix and mix until combined.
3. Add milk to loosen up the texture of the dip. Mix again until smooth.
4. Pour or spoon into serving bowl, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers or cookie of choice.

    That actually does look good. It’s funny how much time I spend telling my readers that my recipe is for pumpkin puree, not pie filling, and I’ve never actually tried the stuff. :)

    This looks amazing! I will be dreaming of pumpkin pie cheesecake dip all day!!! I bet it would make a great frosting for pumpkin muffins too.

      Yes! Totally. I was actually thinking of doing a cupcake frosting with it and a cake pop too!
