Gina's Pumpkin Dip
Here's the recipe for a seasonal favorite and holiday treat from Gina Shimomura. While in Seattle last week, Gina made us a scrumptious pumpkin dip which we enjoyed as a snack and light dessert. She served it with Anna's Ginger Thin Crisps from Costco. The recipe came from her friend at church. Pictured here are Gina and Mark, and cute Teiya and Jordan during Christmas week.
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp orange extract (can use orange zest or a little orange juice)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
Anna's Ginger Thin Crisps (from Costco)
Blend cream cheese, powdered sugar in food processor until smooth. Add rest of ingredients and blend thoroughly. Chill 30 minutes. Serve as a dip with ginger cookies.
