Pumpkin Yum

I have been a bad blogger.  Actually, I have been a bad chef.  My poor kitchen has been terribly neglected these past few months.  I'm almost embarrassed by the poor quality of my cooking, or more to the point, the poor level of enthusiasm I have had in the kitchen.  I need to step it up in a big way.  I think the holiday season is just what I need. 
I love holiday food.  There is something special about the traditional dishes that bring friends and families together.  I have had the opportuniy recently to cook for some friends.  Last weekend was Fakesgiving at my house.  I stuffed a turkey and mulled a couple bottles of wine.  I shall share the recipes soon, I promise.
For today I have a quick, yet delicious treat for you all.  Are you going to a party and need to contribute to the culinary spread?  Are you possitive that no one will have a dessert that is safe for your consumption?  Are you super short on time because, let's face it, the holidays are crazy?  Here is the recipe for you.
Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl
1 package of cream cheese, softened
1 can pumpkin puree
brown sugar
pumpkin pie spice
Gluten Free ginger snaps
In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and pumpkin puree until creamy and fluffy.  Add brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice to taste.  Serve in a bowl with ginger snaps for dipping. 

Easy and delicious!
