A nice, light, and creamy spread. I served it with a selection of crackers and breads at a party, but the winner pairing ended up appearing when a guest asked if I had any tortilla chips. It disappeared pretty quickly after I got those out! It was still a little too pumpkin-y for me personally (not a pumpkin fan), but I'll be sure to use this for parties again! Thanks for sharing!

This was absolutely wonderful. I knew when I saw it that it'd be good, but this was beyond good. I used Neufchatel and Grade B maple syrup (for stronger flavor), and cut back on the brown sugar (to 1/4 cup). I'm going to try this with smoked salmon on pita for a different kind of sandwich, in addition to using it for more traditional sweet flavors. I can't thank you enough for posting this!
