Pumpkin Dip

I have a confession.
I feel very strongly about this.
Pumpkin is not a food!

I can't help it, it's just the way I am.
I have an aunt who feels the same way. At Thanksgiving, while everyone else is gobbling it down...we shiver in the corner.

That being said...
I really like this dip! There is enough spice between the dip and the cookies...and the sweet sugar, that masks the pumpkin taste for me.

My mother handed this recipe down to me. She made it all the time for functions. She was able to find cute little pumpkins to serve it so lucky. OH WELL, a bowl will work!

This one time we were driving about an hour to friend's house.
Dad took a corner...and so did this dip.
Oh the mess!
Pumpkin everywhere!
That car smelled like pumpkin pie spice for the rest of it's "life".

1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese (softened)
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
3 Tsp pumpkin pie spice

1. Mix all ingredients together
2. Serve with ginger snaps
