Let me start off by fessing up.  If I don’t, someone who knows me will call my bluff. 

Plus it’s just poor judgement to lie to my readers.  

I do NOT like pumpkin.  It is a rare day you can get me to eat pumpkin anything.

Pumpkin pie, nope.  Pumpkin cookies, I’ll pass on and well just about anything with pumpkin in it, is a no thank you from me.

I will say…having said that, that my No Bake Pumpkin Spice Cookies, which contain ZERO pumpkin in them but all the spice, I actually quite enjoy.  

I was also pleasantly surprised last year when I made my Pumpkin Bars that I liked those too.  Sometimes life surprises you.

However, in general, as a rule of thumb I avoid all things pumpkin.

The problem with this is that Pumpkin is an iconic and key flavor to Autumn.  

You can’t have autumn without a few pumpkin flavored treats – or so I’m told.

And me being a food blogger, which brings recipes to my favorite people around the world, should probably, though somewhat unwillingly, post a few pumpkin recipes on this fabulous little website of mine.

And so I’ve decided that once a year, every Autumn I’ll post one pumpkin recipe.  This should show you how much I actually love you all.

The problem with this theory, is that as stated before, I don’t actually like pumpkin anything – and neither does my husband or my kids.

This is what we refer to as a major issue.  Because I can’t actually post a recipe here without actually first making it and second telling you if it’s actually good.

And let’s face it, if it’s going to be featured on this website, it better be good.

Lucky for me, I have an amazing extended family who likes Pumpkin and is willing to taste test all my pumpkin recipes.

And overall, everyone enjoyed this 5 Ingredient Pumpkin Dip!  Some referred to it as Pumpkin Fluff, others Pumpkin Dip.  Either way, it was enjoyed by all Pumpkin lovers and is proudly featured on Num’s as our yearly 2016 pumpkin recipe!

The recipe itself takes about 5 minutes to prepare and is served with Ginger Snap cookies or Molasses Cookies. 

This 5 Ingredient Pumpkin Dips is a simple and delicious Autumn appetizer or dessert for any gathering!

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.
