In the fall spirit....

We've been loving fall....the colors, the crisp days, and especially the pumpkin recipes!!! This time of year i go crazy about pumpkin......i wait all year for it's arrival on the scene....pumpkin lattes, pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin curry, pumpkin pie, pumpkin dip!!! Pumpkin Dip is one of my fall favorites and i thought i would share the recipe here. It is super easy and super tasty and may make you a little bit famous among your circle of friends....It is best served with apples, a perfect fall afternoon snack or a great addition to a fall party or buffet.....Seriously, you should try it....

PUMPKIN DIP

3/4 cup (6 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
24 apple slices

Beat cream cheese until smooth and fluffy. Add the pumpkin and brown sugar and beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add syrup and cinnamon, and beat until smooth. Cover and chill 30 minutes. Serve with apple. Enjoy!!

I will definately have to try that one Mandy. We have small group here twice a month and I am always looking for something to add to the feast! It is one of my favorites too but I have never made it.
