With my friends, any ocassion is a great excuse to get together and eat. With all of us coming from so many different backgrounds, we typically favor a potluck setting - and I've yet to be disappointed!
For this year's Secret Santa dinner, one of my friends brought a delicious, fun twist on traditional pumpkin pie - pumpkin dip. With subtle hints of pumpkin, cinnamon and even an orangey kick, this dip is as delicious as it is festive. The recipe is simple - it's sure to be a crowd pleaser at any holiday party this year.
1 8-oz. package of cream cheese, softened
16 oz. confectioners sugar
1 15-oz. can of solid pack pumpkin
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 capful orange extract
In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually add pumpkin. Lightly blend in spices and extract. Chill and serve with ginger snaps. It's that easy!
