This Easy Pumpkin Dip Recipe on TikTok Looks Too Gourd to Be True
Let's face it: with so much food content on TikTok, it's hard to know what's really worth trying. But there's one fall recipe circulating on the app that your taste buds won't be able to ignore. TikTok user @Kendrick_bbq put together a delicious-looking, easy pumpkin dip recipe, and we are salivating just looking at it. Only requiring a pumpkin, a few spices, and cream cheese for its main ingredients, this pumpkin dip is simple enough even for cooking novices out there. Seriously, you don't even have to use a serving bowl if you don't want to.
To make the dip, you start by splitting a small pumpkin in half and cleaning out its guts. After preheating a grill or your oven to 400 degrees, place the two pumpkin halves with the insides facing down on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for about 30-40 minutes, or until the pumpkins are nice and tender. Then, peel the skin off both halves, dice 'em up, throw the pieces in a food processor, and blend. From there, all that's left to do is chill the mixture briefly, add in some pumpkin spice seasoning, cream cheese, and a little brown sugar. Mix it all together, throw it in another pumpkin half (if you desire), and you've got yourself the ideal fall dip. @Kendrick_bbq recommended pairing it with vanilla wafers, but as always, anything goes. Hint: if you want to make this dip even simpler, skip the food processor, use canned pumpkin, and opt for a real serving dish. Bring it to your Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, or keep it in your fridge to eat all fall long — the choice is yours.
