Pumpkin Dip

Doesn't that sound gross? And yet, it's delicious. My friend, Megan, brought this to Quilt Night and I'm in love. It's like eating a bite of pumpkin pie, only there is dipping involved. DIPPING! And how else are you going to eat gingersnaps? Plain?! Remember Grandma Carol always had gingersnaps and Nilla wafers? I never ever chose the gingersnaps.

So, add this to your holiday dip repertoire. The flower-shaped gingersnaps come in a package of 2500 at Costco, but you might be able to find plainer ones elsewhere. (Also, Mom, this is a recipe from Penny C.)

12 oz. Cool Whip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. powdered sugar
8 oz. pumpkin
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cloves

Put everything but Cool Whip in a bowl and mix it together well. Fold in Cool Whip. Chill for a few hours. Serve with gingersnaps.

Sounds good - better than it looks, I must admit. Anything from Penny is bound to be good. Maybe you should bring it next Sunday. :)

I made this for our Coombs family Halloween party and it is soooo delicious! It made a large amount and I have been happily eating the left-overs all week.
