"We had a Halloween party and someone brought this in a carved out cooking pumpkin, it was so cute and so good I just had to share the recipe! This is a wonderful recipe for the fall holidays!"

"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 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!"
"Light, tasty dessert to add to the Tanksgiving feast."
"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."
"Quite tasty. I used it to dip gingersnaps. Pumpkin and ginger - I love these holiday flavors . . ."
"Took this to work to share and everybody loved it! The kids at home loved it too. What a yummy and fun way to get our veggies/fruit. This might be good made into a pumpkin "trifle" with layers of gingersnaps and this dip...guess I'll be experimenting :) Thanks KimmieOH!"
"This was a hit at church! And I am getting tons of requests for the recipe! Thanks so much! This goes into my favorites cookbook."
"Great treat. The only thing I wish I had done differently was to follow the advice to use half the amount of cool whip. Will do that in the future. We had it as a "just because" treat for the kids with apple slices and they loved it. It makes tons... that's one of the reason I will use less cool whip in the future, also to help the flavor of the pumpkin come out more. All in all it was a hit and I'd recommend this recipe."
"This was a hit at a party I attended. Only thing I changed was to use 1/2 tub of cool whip, it made it thicker and more flavorful."
"This is fantastic! I have made this two ways and both turned out great. The first time I made it, it was for a ladies luncheon, so I used light cream cheese, light cool whip, and Equal brand artifical sweetener. It was great with cinnamon graham crakers! I have also made the "full fat" recipe for my husband to take to work and it was fabulous also. It really looks "fall like" in the hollowed out pumpkin! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"The flavor of this is much like a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake. I have been sampling it with gingersnaps and crisp, tart apples this afternoon. It is very good; I might not have enough left to take to work tomorrow. :oops: LOL"
