Frequently Asked Questions

Why does this recipe use cream cheese in its base?

The cream cheese in this recipe helps balance the sweetness of the powdered sugar and whipped topping. Plus, it adds a cheesecake-like tang and makes it extra rich and creamy.

can I make this recipe with homemade whipped cream?

I like to use Cool Whip or a tub of whipped topping for this recipe for a few reasons. First, it is very convenient and saves me time in the kitchen. Also, Cool Whip is more stable than real whipped cream, which begins to deflate after a few hours. When made with Cool Whip, this pumpkin pie dip remains light and fluffy for days in the fridge, making it the perfect make-ahead treat.

can I make my own pumpkin puree?

Yes, you can easily make your own pumpkin puree when fresh pumpkins are in season. Cut up one small sugar pumpkin, remove the seeds, and bake the pumpkin pieces at 375° F for one hour on a large baking pan covered with foil. Once soft, remove the pumpkin from the oven and allow the pieces to cool. Place pumpkin in a food processor and purée until smooth.
