Ingredients in easy pumpkin pie dip
Only 7 ingredients stand between you and your next bowl of pumpkin dip! Gather the cool whip, cream cheese, and pumpkin goodies, and let’s begin.
- Cool whip: Start your recipe with 1 8oz tub of defrosted cool whip.
- Cream cheese: From there, add 1 block of softened cream cheese! Combined with the cool whip, these will form the base of the recipe.
- Pumpkin puree: Next up is 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree. This contributes the bulk of that delicious pumpkin flavor and makes the dip what it is!

- Vanilla: As always, 1 tsp of vanilla upgrades the taste.
- Pumpkin pie spice: Throw in 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice for extra flavor.

For measuring, you will need 1 tsp, 1 tbsp, and 1/2 cup.
