Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread

Pumpkin Bread Pudding, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread... Yes, it's definitely fall & time for all things pumpkin! I could not resist trying this recipe that I found over at Pinch My Salt. I decided to take it into the office today along with some bagels as a Friday morning treat for my co-workers. This dip would also be delicious on gingersnaps or apple slices.

Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. In a small bowl, beat softened cream cheese, sugar, and syrup til creamy.
2. Add pumpkin, spices and vanilla and beat til smooth.
3. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
4. Enjoy!
