It is officially Fall, and everyone is celebrating. We are having visitors over to our homes, and the baking is plenteous. Most importantly, we are using pumpkin spice in everything! You might notice how many companies have added pumpkin spice to their menu during the fall. It’s a nostalgic thing but tastes very good as well.
Recently, Philadelphia the company that makes cream cheese added a Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread to their menu. You are not allowed to comment on your hate on pumpkin spice no matter how much you despise it. This is a judgment-free zone. It only comes around once a year and we love it! Cream cheese, pumpkin concentrate, brown sugar, and cinnamon are all included in the spread.
You can use it like normal cream cheese, or you can create beautiful baking selections that change the way people see your creations. It can be the secret ingredient to turning your already good desert into an incredible treat.
You can add this pumpkin spice cream cheese to almost anything without question. Some people want more of it, and some people want less. If you want to use it as a starting point for a dessert, we have compiled some options for you. Here are five ways to use pumpkin spice in your baking!
Gingersnap cookies with a fall twist
Are you looking for a quick snack that you can make? Kraft Heinz has a delicious recipe for Pumpkin-Gingersnap Sandwich Cookies. You will need ginger snap cookies that are homemade, and the star of the show, the pumpkin spice cream cheese. Place two gingersnaps face down and then spread the special cream cheese onto the cookies.
Then you can put the other two cookies on top for a delicious fall snack. Not only is this snack tasty, but you made it faster than you could say “pumpkin.”
Cookie balls pumpkin spice style
Pumpkin spice can always be enhanced with a little ginger. Kraft has another incredible recipe for Ginger-Pumpkin Spice Cookie Balls. To create this delectable treat you will also need crushed gingersnaps, chocolate of your choosing, and sprinkles. Then you need to combine the cream cheese spread with the gingersnap crumbs.
Roll that mixture into cookie ball form and freeze them for right around 10 minutes. Then, you can dip them in melted chocolate just like you would with any other cookie ball. If you love oreo balls, this recipe will blow you away!
Mini Pumpkin spice latte cheesecakes
What even is cream cheese without cheesecake? It’s the crown jewel of the cream cheese baking family. Now, making a simple pumpkin spice cheesecake can be very good. But, if you want to take your baking to the next level then we recommend a mini-pumpkin spice latte cheesecake recipe from My Food and Family.
The recipe says to use normal cream cheese, but you can get into the fall mood by adding the pumpkin spice cream cheese. While there are many options for you to bake on this list, this one is our favorite. A beautiful creation that also really hits the nail on the head when it comes to the fall vibe.
Did someone say French Toast?
French toast? French toast muffins. That’s what we’re talking about! You can make this popular recipe from Kraft into a pumpkin spice dream with their cream cheese spread instead of using the Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread that is recommended in their recipe.
This slight change gives these muffins the pumpkin they deserve! Trust us, you will be ecstatic with the final product.
If you want a baked goodie that really says “fall” then check out this layered pumpkin loaf recipe! It will take your classic pumpkin bread and add a layer of cream cheese. This will enhance the flavor and consistency. Also, the recipe needs Neufchatel cheese, but instead, we will use our pumpkin spice cream cheese one last time.
We hope that this blog post sufficiently supplied you with a few different pumpkin spice recipes.
After just making one or two of these deserts you will quickly become a master of the pumpkin spice cream cheese. While we can’t guarantee that you will win any bake-offs, we can promise that your tastebuds will thank you for trying out these scrumptious recipes.
