Cook's Notes:

Dip may be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated before serving. Remove from fridge approximately 15 minutes before serving for optimal consistency.

You may mix this dip with a hand mixer or allow the cream cheese to soften before mixing, though I did not find either to be necessary.

You can also make a pumpkin pudding (think banana pudding with vanilla wafers). Layer dip alternating with ginger snaps and top with real whipped cream. Great in individual dessert dishes!
