Do your party guest like creamy dips?  So do mind. And since pumpkins are such a big part of fall, this dip incorporates pumpkin puree in a tasty and sweet way. A generous dash of bourbon also adds some great flavor.

Start your party with some creamy pumpkin dip.

We are right in the middle of the party season that lasts for three months each year.  This dip is perfect for both Thanksgiving and Halloween and has a creamy cheesecake like texture.

I loved creamy dips. They are perfect for both fruits and pretzel chips to have as dipping options.  They are always popular with my party guests.

This dip combines canned pumpkin with cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar for a sweet dip that Diamond says tastes great with ginger snaps or slices of apple.  And did I mention there is bourbon in the dip too?  Perfect for a party!

She also changes things up a bit by adding a can of whole cranberries to this and using it on turkey sandwiches!
