Needed a last moment dish to take to a ladies get together. With time constraints wanted to use only ingredients I had on hand. Having all the necessary ingredients "Except" only 1 8 oz container of cool whip. I decided to add the other 8 oz. using softened cream cheese.
I had already used a hand mixer to blend together the pumpkin, spices, and vanilla pudding mix. I mashed the cream cheese with a fork in a separate bowl to smooth & soften the block of cream cheese. Then used the mixer to blend in the cream cheese.
Lastly added in the chilled Cool Whip by blending/folding it in with a spatula or large spoon.
Had not tasted the original recipe, but have to say this version was a hit with the gals. Nearly evryone wanted to know the recipe and when I offered to share the amt. that was left after our meal was done, I think I took home about a 1/2 cup.
The ladies said they liked the cream cheese in it and perhaps it made the difference so the pumpkin was not overpowering the dip.
