Pumpkin Cream Cheese

This morning, the kids and I had a great time at Costco. Judah's been desperately wanting this firefighter costume and today was his lucky day.... The boy is officially all set for Halloween.
While we were there, we bumped into a friend from MOPS and had lunch with them, which was super fun. Besides getting an awesome costume and having lunch with friends, we picked up a BIG 3 pack of canned pumpkin, which was practically the highlight of my day.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know that I've been pinning to my Fall Board for awhile now. I just can't help it....I love all things fall.

The recipe that I made this afternoon was just too delicious and easy to not share. This Pumpkin Cream Cheese is a new "must have", that needs to be in our refrigerator at all times. It's just that good.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and the source is LaaLoosh, which is apparently a site that features Weight Watcher's recipes.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese
•8oz cream cheese, softened
• ½ cup canned pure pumpkin
•1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
•1 tsp vanilla
•2 tbsp brown sugar
•dash of salt

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until smooth and creamy.
I spread mine onto my favorite whole grain bread and it was absolutely perfect. It reminded me of how pumpkin pie tastes but, without the guilt or all of the effort.
So, what do you love to make with Pumpkin? Isn't this time of year the best?

Linking up here.
