WONDERFUL!!! I didn't have time to give them the full "Martha Stewart" treatment with the hollowed out pumpkin bowl, but nobody cared. The adults and kids went crazy for this!! We used apple slices dipped in Sprite ( to prevent browning ) and graham crackers. Next time I'm using ginger snaps and slices of frozen pound cake. Also my son can't have eggs, so I am putting this in a graham cracker pie crust so he can have "pumpkin pie" like the rest of us on Thanksgiving. Great recipe!!

This is a very nice dip. The only thing I did different was added 3/4 c. x sugar, and increased the spices to my taste. It is very light and fluffy and a very nice orange color. I served it with cinnamon grahams crackers and ginger snaps. Thanks for a nice recipe.

I planned on serving this before Thanksgiving dinner but ended up serving it before & after. The kids loved it`!

MMMMMMMMM! What a delicious way to welcome Fall! I made this recipe exactly as listed and took it to our small group Bible study. One of the ladies asked for the recipe and I think that's one of the best compliments a recipe can receive! I'd love to make this again and serve it in a carved out pumpkin like mentioned! Thanks for a delicious way to enjoy pumpkin!

I doubled the cream cheese (as another reviewer mentioned) and I did use just shy of 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice (instead of the spices listed). I served it with cinnamon-sugar pita chips and thought it was very good! My mother thought it could use more pumpkin (it isn't very pumpkin-y) but even the non-pumpkin pie lovers thought it was good. Thanks for a quick and easy (and good!) recipe!

I've tried different types of pumpkin dips, but never one with cool whip. It made it lovely and creamy and the texture was amazing. This is just perfect with biscuits, apples and chocolate covered biscuits! Great for a party I imagine!

I can't stop eating this! I served it with apples and ginger snaps--I like the cookies better if for no other reason than it's hard to keep apples from turning brown which isn't the best for serving at a party-though I might try the Sprite trick I see someone else posted. I used low fat cream cheese and 'lite' cool whip. It's really very very good!

Loved this dip! I had made it before with more cool whip and without the cream cheese. I have now thrown out that old recipe to use this one. It was just the right balance of sweetness, especially when eaten with ginger snaps. Yum!

It was pretty good as it stands, but I like it better if you double the cream cheese and put half of the cool whip. But, I LOVE cream cheese.
