If you are the person that will be responsible to bring the dessert for Thanksgiving, then this cream cheese pumpkin dip dessert is for you. I am always the “dessert person” in my family. I really don’t like the cooking part as much as the dessert. I love to bake and try new recipes. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I sign up to receive dessert recipes delivered to my email so I am always finding really good recipes to try.
