Yummy Pumpkin Dip for Gramma Rose's Molasses Sugar Cookies

Here is the Sweet-n-Creamy Pumpkin Dip recipe for everyone who asked:
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. orange extract (optional-I left it out)

  1. In a food processor, blend cream cheese and confectioners sugar until smooth. Remove cover, add pumpkin and remaining ingredients. Blend thoroughly.
  2. Chill 30 minutes or until read to serve. Serve with Gramma Rose's Soft Molasses Sugar Cookies, or a spice cookie of your choosing.
  3. make 2-1/2 cups

* Looks really festive when served in a carved out mini pumpkin like in the picture above. I placed a small plastic container in the pumpkin to hold the dip.

Apple Pie...Its a good thing :)

Wow! The apples are fabulous this year! They are so big my hands get tired from peeling them. If you haven't gone to the orchard this season you must go. I love the Granville Orchard-lots of varieties to pick or already bagged for grab and go. Plus-there's pumpkins, jams and jellies, and country crafts to choose from. Their price is very reasonable ($8/bag if you pick)
I'll be making apple and pecan pies this week, and whatever else floats my boat. Definitely some pumpkin breads, coffeecakes and those yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies :) I may surprise my friends in Westerville and bring the Lemon Pecan Dessert Bread (aka Pastry Lemonade).
I'm working on a monthly newsletter and hope to have the first one out this month.
Remember to come to the outdoor markets-we will be there through October rain or shine, cold or hot, and even an occasional tornado!!
