Pumpkin Cream Cheese

November 1st... Allergies are finally leaving me, and I am feeling a little more back on my game. I missed decorating for Halloween, and have not been enjoying fall much until the last couple days. So, no more whining, time to get in gear and start enjoying my favorite time of year!!!

This week I made my first pumpkin treat of the season (told ya I am behind on everything!). Pumpkin Cream Cheese. This stuff is so dang good, it almost makes up for the fact that it's my first pumpkin adventure! Back in the city days, I would get a pumpkin bagel shmeared with pumpkin cream cheese from Einstein Bros. I just loved it, but again... that was back in the day. It was one of those foods that I just put out of my mind and learned to live without. Then... One day... On pinterest... You got it, I found Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread. Thank you for sharing, My Favorite Things!  

Pumpkin Cream Cheese (Source: My Favorite Things)

1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t. vanilla

Beat all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours*

**Note: The closer you wait to the 24 hours, the more this will just "wow" your tastebuds!!
