Creamy Pumpkin Spread

Slightly sweet with a rich pumpkin flavor, this spread is good served on toasted English muffins, bagels, or toasted French bread rounds. This pumpkin spread also works as a dip for apple and pear slices.

If you want a savory pumpkin spread, omit the honey and cinnamon, and substitute 1/2 teaspoon white pepper and a dash of hot sauce. Serve on toast or with sliced fresh vegetables.


Yield: 12 servings (about 1 1/2 cups)

1 cup pureed pumpkin (about half a 15-ounce can)

1/2 cup light cream cheese

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

  2. Whip until smooth and creamy.
