Pumpkin Sweet Treats

Well hello everyone. This week has been crazy. I have wanted to post and it seems every time I make a yummy recipe I don't have time or the energy. This is a yummy treat that you can't stop eating. It is really good with graham crackers or vanilla cream cookies. I like to serve it in small pumpkins for pretty display.

Sweet Pumpkin Spread

8 oz. soft cream cheese
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Beat cream cheese until creamy and smooth; add pumpkin, milk, vanilla and spices, mix well. Stir in pecans. Spoon into a bowl or hollowed out small pumpkin. Keep chilled until serving. Makes 2 cups


  1. When my mom and I started on Weight Watchers ages ago, this was almost precisely what we made one Thanksgiving! We used fat free cream cheese and condensed milk and I think we only added cinnamon, and froze it into individual muffin cups. At dinner we served them with candied pecans instead of mixing them in, so those that didn't like them (like me!) didnt have to eat them. Thanks for the memories!

  2. Sarah,

    I am so glad that the recipe brought memories back for you. I love making this recipe and it is so tasty. It is always good to have low fat alternatives to recipes that you enjoy.

I have a restaurant in Brazil, Indiana named Simply Decadent Cafe & Catering. I also do full event catering along with wedding/party planning. I must admit I am horribly addicted to coffee and wild cherry diet pepsi along with chocolate. I love listening to my MP3 player while I cook and have been known to dance around the kitchen a little. Have to make the kitchen fun don't we? I don't have any formal kitchen training, but have learned a lot over the years from a few fantastic cooks, my grandma being one of them. I love trying new recipes and my customers are always willing to be my taste testers.
