Pumpkin Maple Spread
Ingredients you will need:
( 4 ) 8oz. Cream Cheese ( soften at room temperature )
4 1/2 cups of Confectioners powder sugar
1 stick of margin ( soften at room temperature )
1 1/4 teaspoon of maple flavoring
1 ( 15 oz. ) can of Pumpkin pie filling
Mix in a very large bowl.
Place soften cream cheese at room temperature in large bowl.
Use a mixer on low speed and very slowly begin to mix soften cream cheese, ( beaters will need to be scraped off a couple of times when mixing the cream cheese ).
Then add the soften margine to cream cheese, still mixing slowly ( beaters will need to be scraped off a couple of times when mixing the two together ).
Add 1 1/4 of maple flavoring to mixture, and slowly mix together.
Now add the can of pumpkin pie filling. Still beating slowly until ingredients are blended well.
Add 1 cup of confectioners powder sugar at a time mixing slowly until well blended.
This will thicken up as you add the confectioners powder sugar.
May use pumpkin flavoring or pumpkin spice instead of a can of pumpkin pie just decrease the confectioners powder sugar by 1 cup, and use 1 1/2 teaspoons of the pumpkin flavoring, add this in after you add the maple flavoring.
This works well served on a bagel or on donuts. Can even be spread over pancakes instead of maple syrup.
Can be spread over a pound cake, angle food cake or a white cake.
Works well with Thanksgiving holiday. Can be served with crackers of your choice as a dip.
