This is a sponsored post for National Canned Food Month. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey!!! It’s fall y’all!!! I am bringing you another great recipe you can make out of your Cantry with the Cans Get You Cooking campaign! Remember how we talked about how great it is to have a stocked Cantry? Canned foods are an amazing help in creating quick meals and in helping with always having basic ingredients on hand to help make any meal.
I love having canned foods on hand because not only do they make meal prep and planning easier but fruits and veggies are harvested and canned within hours thus locking in all their yummy goodness and nutrition. So that is why I always make sure to have a fully stocked Cantry so a delicious meal or treat is never out of reach!
Speaking of Cantry, I wanna talk a little bit about Cantry Thursdays. So we figure by around Thursdays your produce has probably seen it’s last days and ideas might be running low which makes Cantry Thursdays a perfect way to figure out dinner that night. By keeping a well stocked Cantry you will always have plenty of yummy ingredients to make a spectacular meal for your family.
Sometimes when we think of canned items we think of savory but since it is fall I want to show you how to make an amazing and easy treat using canned pumpkin.
Canned pumpkin is something I always have on hand and stock up on as soon as the weather gets a little nip in the air. It is so good in baked desserts, puddings, even as a pasta sauce!
But today I am going to show the quickest most delicious pumpkin dessert you can make in minutes and is a real crowd pleaser! My Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip!
First you start off with a block of softened cream cheese and just place it on your tray.
Next you head towards your Cantry and grab your trusty can of pumpkin. Now you just want to mix that pumpkin with a little brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice, yum!!!
Then you just spoon the pumpkin mixture over the cream cheese!
Now for the finishing touch I just caramelize some pecans up real quick with a little cinnamon and brown sugar and use those to top this fabulously creamy dish.
Easy Pumpkin Pecan Cream Cheese Dip
1 eight ounce block cream cheese
1 can Libby's Pumpkin
2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pecans
2 tablespoons brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
1 tablespoon water
Spread the softened cream cheese out on your tray slightly.
Mix the pumpkin with the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Pour pumpkin mixture over cream cheese.
Now on medium heat combine the water, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and water with a dash of cinnamon and the pecans.
Let this mixture bubble and thicken slightly.
Spoon the pecans over the pumpkin mixture.
Serve with gingersnaps and enjoy!
It is just that easy!! I serve mine with gingersnaps because pumpkin and ginger are a match made in heaven but it would be just as delicious with graham crackers too!!
This dip is perfect to take to parties or serve for guests. It is so quick and delicious and every one will love it!!
So get into the fall spirit and celebrate with a quick trip to your Cantry to make this luscious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip!
