Pumpkin Cream Cheese

pumpkin,cream cheese,halloween,fall


  • 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 c canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice


In medium mixing bowl, mix all ingredients with an electric mixer until smooth (around 3 minutes.) Refrigerate at least one hour. Add more pumpkin pie spice to taste.

I love making this recipe every fall. I never finish it all so this time I’m bringing half over to a friend. I need another recipe that doesn’t need a full can of pumpkin because that’s a huge waste to use just 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin. Any ideas?

  1. U are making me hungry every time I stop here! LOL

  2. I lurrrrve me some pumpkin recipes.

    I use pumpkin pureee in butternut squash soup.
    Last year I made pumpkin chili (that would be a good idea for your leftover from this recipe).

    The kids are addicted to whole-wheat pumpkin muffins . . . which reminds me, I need to make some more today!

  3. Okay, funny story. Last year I bought like a dozen or MORE cans of pumpkin while it was on sale. Hubs has been after me to do SOMEthing with it. I could just hug you for this recipe, cause I am so NOT in the mood to make pies. Oh, yah, and since pumpkins are doing poorly this year, the can stuff is at least three times what I paid for it last year. Woot to me for being frugal, right? Thanks again!

  4. I got to sample this one and it was SUPER yummy. Try it.

  5. I made something similar… I just added nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon to cream cheese plus a touch of orange food coloring, and wala it was really good!

  6. I love anything cream cheese and now you’ve added pumpkin flavor!!! YUMMY!!!

  7. Okay, so I don’t always read directions carefully. I made this tonight and accidentally used 1/2 can of pumpkin, instead of 1/2 cup. Turned out great, though, and Hubs likes it. Yum.

  8. Hmmm now that’s one thing I thought they would of never made..

  9. I like it alot
