Recipe

This time of year pumpkin lovers come out the woodwork sharing thousands of pumpkin recipes, and with a deep love of pumpkin myself, I can’t help but jump on board. Although if you hate pumpkin, I have an alternative for you as well for a delicious apple, butternut squash, or pear cream cheese instead.

Today’s recipe is a simple but delicious one that pairs perfectly with bagels, wraps, waffles, and breads and is a better alternative than store bought pumpkin cream cheese. All you have to do is whip together your favorite store bought cream cheese with pumpkin puree, a touch of maple syrup, and some pumpkin pie spice. Alternatively you can replace the pumpkin with a quarter cup pureed butternut squash, apple butter, cranberry butter, or cooked and pureed pears for an equally yummy, pumpkin free version. Store it in an airtight container in the fridge and it should last about one week.
