Weekend Fare: Pumpkin Dip & Pumpkin Pie Spice

Our magazine review will be tomorrow with our picks for the best Thanksgiving magazines!

Today, I'm sharing a recipe that wouldn't generally be in my repetoire but is delicious and very easy for holiday entertaining, so I'm making an exception. :) This is a quick, easy, and wonderful dessert dip. It's great for this time of year - perfect for showers, open houses, and snacks. I requested the recipe after enjoying it at an event and modified a little for our taste. You can serve this with gingersnaps, cinnamon grahams, cinnamon pita chips or whatever else sounds good to you!
