Pumpkin Dip for Gingersnaps

Pumpkin Dip for GingersnapsPinitThis post is the crossroads of my teacher self and my blogger self.

You have some homework.

You need to make this glorious trio of pumpkin, cream cheese, and heavy whipping cream and bring it to a party.  For me, a party is usually me and Bjork hanging out on a Tuesday night.  But you can do whatever you want.

Pumpkin Dip for Gingersnaps

There are a few rules, because I’m the teacher.

You have to eat this with gingersnaps. Translation: you need to put an XL (xtra large), XF (xtra fluffy) dollop of pumpkin dip on top of each cookie, and then do it again 50x.

One last rule.  Drizzle maple syrup and crumble gingersnaps on top of the bowl, because it’s more fun to look at in the 2 minutes before it gets devoured.

Assignment due ASAP.

Pumpkin Dip for Gingersnaps
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 20-25
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup pumpkin
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spices (I eyeballed it with cinnamon, cloves, and allspice)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • gingersnaps
  1. Using an electric mixer, whip together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and heavy whipping cream for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the pumpkin, spices, and maple syrup - whip again for 2-3 minutes (the longer you whip, the more fluffy it becomes).
  3. Add a drizzle of maple syrup and crushed gingersnap crumbs on top for looks. Dip with gingersnaps or apple slices!

Heavy whipping cream is so dangerous in my fridge.  So. So. Dangerous.

I love living dangerously.

  1. You’re a very clever girl 😉

  2. had this combo over the weekend. didn’t even know this was a thing…SO GOOD!

  3. This looks SO SO good. I’m afraid I would fail the assignment because I would eat this all myself!

  4. Make this for a party? Not a chance. The first time I had this, my boss and I went to the break room to get coffee. It was on the table. We sat and had an impromptu “meeting” while we just about devoured the entire bowl. I love this stuff. I also love the idea of drizzling maple syrup….yum.

  5. Mmmm, my mom made a very similar dip last year for a party– it was delicious! We served ours in a little pumpkin 😉

  6. Yummm! I might be heading to a Halloween gathering (with lots of kids) and this would be perfect!

  7. This looks awesome…..

    Pumpkin pie is my 2nd favorite to pecan..

    now.. can you figure out how to turn pecan pie into a dip??

  8. Perfect for me! I just bought some gingersnaps the other day and have so many…this is so easy! Thanks for posting, definitely gonna stop by for the ingredients after work!

  9. I love this! Pumpkin pie flavors + maple + gingersnap sounds like the best combo in the world! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some dinner parties so I don’t just make it and eat all myself!

  10. holy. crap. yes.

  11. That sounds delicious and perfect for a holiday party.

  12. This is a standard at any Halloween party my girlfriends and I have. But, we use graham crackers. Never actually thought of gingersnaps, but actually sounds better than grahams!

    • I thought of graham crackers but the gingersnaps at the grocery store distracted me. I bet cinnamon sugar grahams would be great!

  13. Emily @ A Cambridge Story says:

    This is great! So simple – yet inventive! I really cannot get enough pumpkin right now!

  14. I bet this dip would be great on gingersnaps, and then some!

  15. I like this kind of homework!

  16. This is very similar to the pumpkin fluff recipe I like to make. I like to dip apples and ginger snaps in the pumpkin fluff too!


  17. This dip looks yummy!

  18. I made a pumpkin spread for bagels, but never thought to dip cookies into it! Genius!

  19. Soo @ Little Miss Fitness says:

    Not only does the dip and snaps look good, your nails look good! :)

  20. I’m going to a party this weekend… I may need to bring this as my offering. :)

  21. Yum. This could be seriously deadly. I can see myself eating gingersnaps like potato chips with this bowl of heaven at my side.

  22. I bet I could eat this without the cookie :) This would be a great dip for a party! I have to make a dish to bring this weekend, this might just be the one!

  23. I can totally handle this assignment :) This dip looks fantastic!

  24. Extra credit for doubling the batch and eating it all immediately?

  25. Living The Sweet Life says:

    Sounds like a dippable version of fall in a bowl!! ~Delicious.

  26. Could I be able to make this with out the cheese? Maybe substituting for something like yogurt even is it doesn’t end up as creamy? It looks delicious!

    • Yes, I think you could totally sub some yogurt. It won’t be as cheesecake-y, but you’d still get the same other pumpkin/maple flavors!

  27. Thanks. This is sooo good. A coworker makes it and I love it. I was looking for the recipe so I can make it this coming thanksgiving. Thanks for posting it. I might not drizzle it with mapple syrup. I cant wait to make it. I might have to make some pre thanksgiving dinner for me to eat lol

  28. Thanks. This is sooo good. A coworker makes it and I love it. I was looking for the recipe so I can make it this coming thanksgiving. Thanks for posting it. I might not drizzle it with mapple syrup. I cant wait to make it

  29. Yeah…I need like 5,000 of these stat. Pop quiz tomorrow! The student who brings the most gingersnaps and pumpkin dips gets an A+.
