We take pumpkin dip seriously. During the recipe testing process for this dip we tried a whole bunch of different combinations.

But ultimately we LOVED this combination. The powdered sugar adds sweetness and the cream cheese adds the perfect cream cheese flavor, making the dip taste rich and creamy!
