Day 23: Pumpkin Cream Cheese

As an avid bagel and cream cheese lover I always try and find ways to spice up my bagel.  Following right along with our 31 Day Pumpkin Challenge I decided to whip up some pumpkin cream cheese.  This is a quick and easy recipe that can be tapered to your tastes, whether you like your cream cheese more sweet or more full of pumpkin flavor is up to you. So grab your favorite cream cheese and your favorite bagel, bread or other cream cheese vehicle and get going!

  • 8oz package of cream cheese, softened so that it mixes easier

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/4 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients together until smooth, feel free to use an electric mixer if you have one. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using. Best if made the night before.

Also works great on a slice of Day 3's Spiced Pumpkin Loaf!
