I have a problem with the cream cheese being lumpy every time I make this. I finally solved my problem. I microwaved the cream cheese just to barely warm. I cut the sugar back to 1 cup and I didn't add the OJ. It was very good and not too sugary. Read More

This was great! Just be forewarned that it makes a LOT of dip; it is also not something you can eat a lot of so if you are making it for a small get together you might want to halve the recipe! Overall a hit tastes just like pumpkin pie filling great with ginger snaps and graham crackers. Read More

Excellent! If I made it again I would substitute 1/2 tsp. ground ginger nutmeg and/or cloves for the pumpkin pie spice since the dip seemed to have a little too much cinnamon (my pie spice was mostly cinnamon.) I chilled it for a few hours before I served it in a hollow pumpkin shell and it was a hit! Read More

My little sister put me onto this. It's wonderful. I used whipped cream cheese because I had some on hand that I needed to use up. Since cream cheese is sold by weight not by volume I figured it wouldn't make much difference whether it was whipped or not except that the whipped kind is much easier to stir. Read More

Here's another tip: Hollow out a small pumpkin and use it to serve the dip in! It will be a bigger hit! Little kids & big kids will love it! -Melissa Young Read More

Made if for a Halloween Party on Saturday night. The adults loved it. At first the kids (mostly 6 yr old.) turned their nose up at it until they saw my son eating it then they had to try it and loved it. I brought the cream cheese to room tempature and sifted the powdered sugar before adding it. I used a mixer and had no problems with lumping when I added the pumpkin. Thanks Sue for sharing this wonderful recipe with the rest of us! Read More

Delicious- but don't expect it to be pretty. My cream cheese was as softened as it could be before I commenced to mixing. I beat it to death with my mixer and still there were tiny lumps of cream cheese through out. Oh well. It sure tastes good with ginger snaps and apple slices- or just by the spoonfull! Read More

This was a great recipe! It is an excellent presentation if you put the dip inside a scooped mini pumpkin. People are more inclined to try it with such an interesting presentation. Everyone loved it! Read More
