Recipe for Pumpkin Pie Dip with Cinnamon Sugar Dippers - Quick, Easy, & Delicious!

The holidays are fast approaching! That means, of course, that most of us will be entertaining guests; I find it’s nice to have a few quick and easy recipes that I can whip up to serve my guests at a moment’s notice. This yummy dip is lighter than pumpkin pie, but incorporates pumpkin pie’s delicious flavors, and can be put together in a flash. While you can substitute ready-made ginger snap cookies for dippers, I think the pie crust “cookies” make it special. No one will guess how fast and easy these dippers are; you don’t even have to roll them out.

If you have time to plan, both the dip and dippers can also be made ahead. I find that both children and adults love to dunk cookies into a tasty dip, so this is a perfect addition to the dessert area of a holiday buffet.

Dip
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 15 oz. can pumpkin, (not pumpkin pie mix)

1 15 oz. package Already Rolled Pie Crusts, such as Pillsbury
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon cream or milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

 
Pumpkin Pie Dip: Whip together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, honey, and pumpkin pie spice until smooth and well-mixed. Add the pumpkin and beat until very light. Transfer to a serving bowl; cover and refrigerate until serving.
 
Pie Crust Dippers: Bring the pie crusts to room temperature and carefully unroll. Cut each of the crusts with a fluted cutter into strips 1" wide, then each strip crosswise into 1" pieces.
 
Place the pieces on a baking sheet and brush with the beaten egg mixture. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on the pie crust pieces.
 
Bake in a preheated 400° oven until lightly browned on the edges. Remove from the oven and cool thoroughly.
