Stock-Up on Pumpkin Puree at Martin's AND Pumpkin Pie Dip Recipe!

Martins has this Stokely's 28 oz can of pumpkin puree for only $1.79, a stock-up price in my opinion, even without a coupon. I didn't know there was another brand besides Libby's that sells pure pumpkin (that is not organic).

These are a great booster for soups, casseroles, spaghetti sauces, even muffins and pancakes. It's so bland you cannot tell it's mixed in. I'd go as far as trying it out on smoothies for the summer. This is the nutritional info found on the back of the can:

For 1/2 cup serving:
Vitamin A- 280%
Vitamin C- 8%
Calcium - 4%
Iron- 4%

Pumpkin Pie Dip (adapted from Taste of Home)
1/4 block of softened cream cheese
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
1 tsp apple or pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions: Beat cream cheese til smooth. Mix in sugar then pumpkin puree. Add spices and mix well.

That's it! We served ours with Stacy's Gingerbread Pita Chips. Target had these for $1.50 during the 50% off Christmas clearance. After trying the chips, I knew we had to make this dip. It was really great together.
