Very good as a desert garnished with a vanilla wafer or as a dip served with vanilla wafers. I have been cooking for years and have grown to love trying new things and discovering new recipes. Would Love some feed back from others who decide to try this recipe.

This pumpkin dessert is quickly going to become a family favorite. Cream cheese makes it a little rich. Butterscotch pudding is the only sweetness added to the recipe so the dessert dip is not overly sweet. Served with the sweet vanilla wafers pumps up the sweetness. If you want to serve this as an individual dessert (rather than a dip), just crush wafers on top before serving. So good!

How To Make holiday pumpkin dessert / dip

  • Cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and spices in a mixing bowl.
    You can substitute cheesecake pudding for the butterscotch pudding but you will lose a little bit of flavor. Place room temperature cream cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
  • Ingredients blended until smooth.
    Blend well and make sure it is smooth. All the lumps should be out of the cream cheese.
  • Butterscotch pudding mix and milk added to the bowl.
    Add butterscotch pudding mix and milk.
  • Mixing all the ingredients together.
    Beat until all ingredients are mixed well.
  • Refrigerating the dip.
    Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
  • Holiday Pumpkin Dessert put into a serving bowl.
    At serving time, either as a dip or pudding type dessert fill either your pudding cups and garnish with a vanilla wafer or serve in a dip bowl and surround bowl with vanilla wafers. Enjoy! With my family had to double the recipe it doesn't last long. I hope you all enjoy.

    Total prep time from start to finish is about an hour for ready to be served. The longer it is refrigerated the more it will be like pudding then a dip.
