View Full Version : Pumpkin Dip Recipe from Pampered Chef?

A few years ago I had this yummy recipe for this dip. It came from a PC party, but it may have been a recipe of the consultant's. I couldn't find it in the PC Recipe search.

It had canned pumpkin, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cool whip, cream cheese, and maybe sour cream. I always used low fat ingredients!!

You cut flour tortillas in triangles, brushed with water, and sprinkled w/ cin/sugar and then baked and used them as the chips.

Anyone have anything that sounds similar? I can't find my recipe, though I still have some more looking to do.

I've never had this, but here are a couple of recipes I found on Allrecipes.com, but neither of them have Cool Whip or sour cream.

Pumpkin Dip
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon frozen orange juice concentrate

In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Gradually mix in the pumpkin. Stir in the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and orange juice until smooth and well blended. Chill until serving. Serve with gingersnaps.

Spicy Pumpkin Dip (from McCormick Spices)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon McCormick® Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Orange Extract
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Ground Ginger
gingersnap cookies

1 Blend cream cheese and confectioners sugar until smooth in a food processor. Remove cover, add pumpkin and remaining ingredients. Blend thoroughly.
2 Chill 30 minutes or until ready to serve. Serve with Gingersnap cookies.

Note: May substitute Red Delicious apples or pears, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices, leaving skin on for color. Toss fruit with a little lemon juice mixed with water to prevent browning.

Thanks Robyn. I had searched and saw those, but they just don't seem quite right. I'll keep looking though, and post here if I find the right one. It's such a yummy snack!!

Found two more... They are bothe basically the same, the ratio of cream cheese and confectioners sugar varies slightly...

from http://www.muscanet.com/~vondasvine/RECIPEPAGE.htm

In fall you could use gingersnaps and for Christmas use gingerbread people for dipping!

¥ 3 oz. softened cream cheese
¥ 1/2 c. powdered sugar
¥ 1 c. pumpkin pie mix with spices (NOT SOLID PACK PUMPKIN!)

Combine ingredients using your electric mixer.

Fold in 8 oz. whipped topping until smooth.

Serve dip in a bowl (small mixing, stackable, etc.), small covered dish, pint crock or
sugar bowl. (A candy pumpkin centered on top of thedip adds a bit more color and hints what the flavor of
the dip will be.) Place the bowl of dip in the middle of a Pie Plate, serving platter or turkey platter (depending on the number of guests you're serving).

Ok, I dug around and finally found the recipe I was looking for.

Harvest Pumpkin Dip
1 pk 5" flour tortillas
cinnamon sugar

for the dip:
1 can packed pumpkin (not pie filling)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cool whip
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
cinnamon to taste
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional, can mix in or sprinkle on top)

Make the dip first and refrigerate. Mix all of the dip ingredients. Adjust the brown sugar, cinnamon, and cool whip to your liking.

Cut tortillas into triangles. Brush with water and sprinkle w/ cin/sugar. Bake at 400 for 8-10 min or until lightly browned.

This sounds yummy!

Question? Would you serve this as a appetizer or for dessert?

Thanks for the recipe. Ann :)

I've primarily had it as an appetizer (or as part of a work potluck--people just dug in as they wished). It would work well both ways, IMO.
