Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

This Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip is also known as “Crack Dip” in our household! It’s only four super simple ingredients! It will be a new tradition in your house!

My obsession with pumpkin knows no bounds. It rivals even my obsession with Dowton Abbey, and we all know how much that is saying… BTW, it’s already airing its third season in the UK, and it momentarily crossed my mind that I could apply for an international posting with my company for the next four months just so I didn’t have to wait until the dead of winter to start watching the next season. #obsessed.

But for now I will be content and live my days obsessing over pumpkin filled things, fall, apple picking and leaf peeping.

I guess. *le sigh*

And to officially kick off the next 90 days of Pumpkin-All-The-Things I’m redeux-ing the now infamous Pumpkin Crack Dip. If you’ve known me for any length of time, this is nothing new to you. But if you are new around here, Let. Me. Tell. You.

Make ready all your mops, tarps, and paddy bicycle pants, because you are going to need em to catch the drool, mop the drool and pad your ass as you slide out ‘cha dayum chair, son.

Your life will be shifting on a new axis and that is a beautimus thing.

The last couple few weeks have been rapidly changing for Ben and I – as the week we got back from our blessed wedding and honeymoon, he was back to work 300 miles away and mama got a new job! Then I was back in Alaska for four days, then back home to work, train for the new job and simultaneously train my replacement, and lastly – move Ben home!! If it weren’t for all my hacking, coughing and haze filled air the Palouse would have proved stunning as ever, post harvest.

And as you read this he is currently plugging away with a loaded down pick up and most notably with my hand made bookcase whittled from the wood of some exotic far off land Home Depot, hand stained with his rough manly man-beast of a husband’s hands.

Yeah, it made my slightly sick getting that mushy too. I’ll stop now.

So, to move this carosel all the way around – the last couple of weeks have been stressful. And now that I’m hyper focused on everything from the new job, to cleaning the apartment to have the husband move back home, to having one of my blogging besties coming to visit, and the ridiculous stain on kitchen floor that even Kryptonian cleaning solution can’t  remove – this dip is my salvation, sanctuary, and only thing able to distract me from the cocophony of chaos occuring in my life.

And it’s like crack. Natch. So it holds my attention and devotion and distracts me from the gym and fitting back into those nice-ass jeans I worked so hard to squeeze into pre-wedding.

Blast! Foiled again.

But oh. So. Worth. It.

    All of these pumpkin treats I’ve been seeing are so tasty but this one? I think it takes the cake… So glad I have a ton of pumpkin at home because I will be making this immediately!

    LOVE! I have my own rendition — fat-free/sugar-free cool whip with pumpkin pie filling, sugar-free vanilla pudding mix and pumpkin spice. Dip a few graham crackers in there and you’re golden!! Definitely like crack.

    Ahhhhh I could look at those Palouse photos everyday. Someday, I’m going to go there for work! Maybe this winter or spring?! It depends how the wheat crop looks in our area. I will definitely call you and we can eat pumpkin crack dip and watch wheat sway 🙂

    What the heck are you doing to me? I can’t even stand these pumpkin post because we have yet to get pie pumpkins at the market and I’ve vowed to only make pumpkin things from scratch to avoid my pumpkining everything I make. This looks amazing. so good.

    There is no way to stop yourself when you mix pumpkin with cream cheese. It’s a proven fact.

    You do not understand HOW MUCH this has been haunting my dreams…. :)))) I’m waiting for the time when I have somewhere to go so I can bring it…. otherwise you’d find me curled up on the floor in front of the fridge at midnight eating it with a spoon. YUUUMMMMMMM.
