I made this to take to work for my co-workers going away party. Wow, this was surprising to me, the hit of the party. The dip was so easy to make and had a great creamy texture. The cinnamon and ginger added a wonderful spiced flavor. I did as you suggested and served with apple slices and gingersnaps. Yum Yum. Thanks Nurse Di.

I've just made this and set it to chill, and I can hardly wait until the party tomorrow night to taste it after it blends! Oh my gosh, is this GOOD! I thought I didn't like pumpkin pie-type stuff, but this is unbelievably good, just swiping the swirls left in the mixing bowl off my finger! I made it with half regular cream cheese, and half light cream cheese, and I added a bit of fresh grated nutmeg, and it is TO DIE FOR! I think next time I might try it with pumpkin pie spice, but I can hardly imagine it could improve on the sweet yet clean taste. I plan to serve it as suggested, with ginger snaps, sliced apples, and a scattering of pistachios, and I can already tell it's going to be a huge hit. This would be lovely at a Thanksgiving breakfast or open house buffet. Simply one of the best dessert recipes I've ever tried. Thanks SO MUCH for posting this!

The little ones ate this on Ritz crackers when we ran out of apples and the big ones want me to double the cream cheese as a holiday bagel topping.

Terrific change of pace. We ate on gingersnaps, graham crackers and shortbread cookies. I am going to also have some as a bagel spread. Great recipe - thanks for posting.

We went to my in-laws for Thanksgiving. My mother-in-law really puts on a spread. I wanted to bring something that was a little different and that would wow everyone. This pumpkin dip was perfect. Tasted just like rich, creamy pumpkin pie filling that tasted great on sliced tart apples. We may have a new tradition here. Thanks

This recipe caught my eye because I have been looking for some neat appetizers to serve for Thanksgiving. I went ahead and made it to see if I thought my family would like it. I personally love the taste and the look of this dip.It has a smooth and creamy texture and a rich and luscious taste. I can hardly wait to share it with the rest of my family. Thanks for this one.

Just AWESOME!! I made this for my book club's monthly meeting. A huge hit with everyone and the talk of the evening. I told everyone about this site and where I got the recipe. The dip tasted just like a creamy pumpkin pie. I served it with butter cookies, gingersnaps, and apples. Looked beautiful and tasted--YUMMY. Much obliged.

Made this to take to our Halloween party at work. Good and delicious. A smooth and creamy dip that had a spicy flavor. I just served it with different varieties of apples. Nothing left to take home. Great party food.

I made this for a Halloween party at my son's High School today - doubled the recipe - and there weren't any leftovers. I tried it before I sent it to school and it truly is delicious.

OMG, this is so incredible. I too made this to take to work and it was an enormous hit. The dip is sweet, creamy, and nicely spiced. As you suggested, I served with gingersnaps and apple slices. Brilliant, just plain brilliant. I am definitely making this again for Thanksgiving. Thanks Nurse Di.
