A great recipe that’s quick and easy to prepare but perfect for such an event is the pumpkin pie dip. It literally only takes 5 mins to pull together, relatively healthy and light enough to still have room for a meal or other goodies later on. It also works well accompanying other tapas or appetizers. Something for everyone to nibble on while they catch up!
Note: It's also a great way to use up the extra pumpkin puree that's leftover from baking!
1 8oz can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 cup brown sugar or confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
3 oz fat free Greek yogurt
8 oz cool whip or whipped cream
Ginger snap cookies
In a medium sized bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
Fold in the greek yogurt and the cool whip (or whipped cream) until just combined.
Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon overtop and serve with apple slices or ginger snap cookies.
