It is quick and easy to put together and when you serve it in a little pumpkin it is very festive for the season! There are a ton of versions of this recipe out there, but this one from Taste Of Home is delicious. It tastes like pumpkin pie but it is a quick and easy dip.  I make mine using their recipe and like to serve it with Nilla Wafers, Ginger Snaps, and little Graham...
