Fluffy Pumpkin Dip

The best part of fall is all the pumpkin foods to try! I love all the warm spices, pumpkin filled recipes, sweater weather, and cozy fires to sit next to.

And it’s the season for baking and gathering with friends and family during all the holidays. With all the things I mentioned, who had time to cook? And who wants to be stuck in the kitchen? NOT ME!

That’s why this pumpkin cheesecake dip is the perfect fall appetizer or dessert! Serve it with my Pumpkin Skillet Dip, Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread, Chocolate Pumpkin Wontons, and wash it down with Pumpkin Apple Punch.

Ingredients Needed

Pumpkin Puree – Be sure to use plain pumpkin puree and not the pumpkin pie mix.

Cream Cheese – You can use full fat, reduced fat, or low fat.

Marshmallow Cream – Also known as marshmallow fluff or marshmallow creme.

Pumpkin Pie SpiceMake your own it tastes better!

Whipped Topping – Use frozen whipped topping like Cool Whip. Don’t use the canned whipped cream under pressure as it won’t be thick enough.

Powdered Sugar – Be sure to sift it first before using to remove clumps.

Nairn’s oat graham cookies – Substitute ginger snaps or other spice cookie.

How to Make Pumpkin Dip with Cool Whip

ONE: Toast the oat graham cookies by placing butter and cookie crumbs in a small pan. Stir over medium high heat for 5 minutes or until slightly browned and fragrant. Remove and cool.

TWO: In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese until smooth. Add the pumpkin and combine.

THREE: Add powdered sugar, spice mix, toasted cookies (reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish), and marshmallow cream. Stir to combine.

FOUR: By hand, fold in Cool Whip (reserving 1/4 cup for garnish) until combined. Spoon into serving dish and garnish with remaining toasted cookies and whipped topping.

How to Store it

Keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days in an air tight container. This dip doesn’t freeze well so I wouldn’t recommend it.

Can I use pumpkin pie filling?

Yes you can. If you use the pie filling just leave out the spices. But, I recommend using pure pumpkin.

Tapas Tips & Tricks

  • making this ahead of time? leave the toasted cookies separate until ready to serve or they will get soggy.
  • if you want to leave out the marshmallow cream, feel free to substitute a box of instant vanilla pudding mix.
  • can’t find pumpkin? use sweet potatoes!
  • add in a teaspoon of vanilla extract for an even richer flavor.
