Whichever direction you decide to go, naughty or nice, this pumpkin pie dip is an absolute hit! And it’s so simple to make!
This is gooooood stuff. I promised you something delicious that you could make with your homemade pumpkin pie spice, and here it is!
I make two versions of this pumpkin pie dip: Naughty and Nice. Or you could call them amazing and amazing. I can’t even choose a favorite, I really like both.
The nice one? A creamy sweet concoction of cream cheese (use low fat if you want), canned pumpkin pureé, and powdered sugar, flavored with pumpkin pie spice and vanilla. This recipe makes about 3 cups of dip. Divide it in half and…..
If you don’t like dark rum, or don’t want to include alcohol (there isn’t much in it but it isn’t cooked out in this recipe), you’ll still love the “nice” version. In fact, I think I might prefer that version. I really can’t decide. I better go give them another taste….
Yup. Both amazing. Can’t decide.
Here are suggestions of what you can dip into pumpkin pie dip:
- sliced apples
- graham crackers or graham cracker sticks
- animal crackers
- gingersnap cookies
- pretzels (yum, sweet and salty!)
- large spoons
Looking for more pumpkin recipes?You have that can of pumpkin opened. What can you do with the rest of it? Here’s some good ideas:
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used reduced fat)
- 1 cup pumpkin purée (canned)
- 1 teaspoon [pumpkin pie spice]
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons dark rum (optional for “naughty” version)
- Using an electric mixer, blend together cream cheese, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, rum (optional) and vanilla until smooth.
- One cup at a time, add powdered sugar and blend until smooth, scraping down sides of the bowl with a rubber scraper.
- Store in refrigerator and serve with animal crackers, graham crackers, gingersnaps or sliced apples. Garnish with a sprinkling of pumpkin pie spice, if desired.
- The "naughty" version with rum is intended for adults only. If you're serving both, make sure they are properly labeled.
- Nutrition information is based on serving size of 2 tablespoons.

Husband’s take: “Good is an understatement.”
Changes I would make: Double, triple, quadruple batch?
