This is a great recipe! I substituted fat-free cream cheese and Splenda Sugar Blend for a low-fat, low-sugar alternative. Also served with apples and graham crackers sticks instead of gingersnaps. YUM!

The orange flavor was overpowering, and although it had potential, it was a bust. I would try again with half the orange extract or none at all.

Thanksgiving reunion with over 40 people...expensive. Spiced pumpkin dip to tide them over...priceless! A big hit! I'll try it warm with gingerbread cookies for Christmas Eve.

WOW! Hubby and the kids all loved this. I substituted frozen orange concentrate for the extract, because it was on hand, it worked very well. Tastes yummy on sliced apples, ginger snaps and graham crackers.

I've made this the last two years. This year I left out the orange extract because and used vanilla extract instead. I figured it would appeal to more people that way. I've received several compliments and requests for the recipe. I think that it would be great with graham crackers.

This was pretty good but I still prefer the pumpkin fluff dip on this site. This recipe was heavier and the other is what the title suggests; fluffy.

You know, this was just ok. It was easy to make and tasted good, but do you really need a dip for cookies? To go with the dip, I made "Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies" (from this site) and they were just awesome. I made this dip based on the reviews, and it was good, I just don't know if it was good with cookies. I took the dish to a baby shower and got the same reaction - it's ok, but most people would rather just eat the cookies. My sister dislikes anything that looks like baby food, so she wasn't too impressed. I myself just found it lacking.

This is very, very good. My 12-year old neice made it under my supervision. She had a ball and was thrilled that it tasted so good! I highly recommend using exactly the amount of pumpkin puree called for an not more, or the dip is too thin. She carved out a small pumpkin and served the dip in that. Very nice treat!
