8ounces(225g) full fat cream cheesesoftened to room temperature
¾cup(194g) pumpkin purée1room temperature2
¼cup(50g) packed brown sugar
½teaspoonpumpkin pie spice
In a medium bowl with a handheld mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin on medium speed until completely combined.
Add the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon and beat again until smooth. Cover tightly and chill at least 30 minutes before serving. Leftovers3 stay fresh covered in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
Pumpkin purée: I always measure pumpkin purée with a measuring cup as the moisture content can wildly change the weight measurements, depending on the brand.
Room temperature pumpkin purée: if your purée is cold, allow it to come to room temperature before combining with other ingredients.
Freeze this pumpkin dip: this dip freezes well, up to 3 months, but be wary of the additional moisture. Allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then blot out any excess moisture with a paper towel. Re-whip the pumpkin dip before serving.
