Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Spread

Even though Fall hasn't officially started and it still gets hot around here most days, I'm so ready to start all my Fall baking.

I thought I'd start with a delicious breakfast treat.

I love pumpkin flavored foods and I thought Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese sounded like a great idea yesterday after my trip to get fresh bagels.

I usually get plain bagels so that you can add whatever flavoring you like.

Some people just use butter (why? I have no clue) some use plain cream cheese, but my kids and I usually use cream cheese and my Homemade Strawberry Jam.

I thought with Fall around the corner and my obsession love for all things pumpkiny why not make some homemade spreads for bagels.

So here is the first one I came up with; Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese Spread :)  And I'm thinking Apple Pie spread might have to be next (wink, wink).

If you like pumpkin flavored goodies, I know you'll love this one!

Here's what you need:

8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature, I always use 1/3 less fat cream cheese
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice, homemade or store bought
2 Tbs. Pumpkin Puree, not pie filling
3 Tbs. sugar

In a bowl beat the cream cheese until fluffy.
Add the pumpkin pie spice and mix until incorporated.
Add the pumpkin puree and sugar and beat until fully incorporated and smooth.

Toast a bagel of your choice.  Let cool a minute or two then spread with Pumpkin Pie Cream Cheese.
Yum, Yum, Yum!  The best way to spend breakfast in the Fall.

Serves 1-1/4 cups approx.
