Creamy, rich, tangy, no-bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip is piped onto sweet little toasted waffles for a fun, easy, holiday dessert!
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for new (easy to fit into the chaos) desserts for Thanksgiving dinner.
Yes, classic pumpkin pie always makes an appearance, but I won’t lie… I buy my pumpkin pie at the store. It’s just too easy and cheap to buy.
I save my Thanksgiving desserts energy for more creative and fun things. I like to change things up and push people’s holiday tastes and memories outside of the norm.
So, I have made this pumpkin cheesecake dip many times before, but I decided to take it a step further and make it a fancy little 2-bite dessert, using cute little toasted Eggo mini-waffles as a crust.
Super cute and easy to throw together… And yay for something new on the holiday table!
What are your favorite desserts for Thanksgiving? Do you always make/serve/eat the same things? Or do you like to change things up each year??
- 2 cups pumpkin purée
- 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar*
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoons cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- Eggo mini-waffles
In a large mixer bowl, cream together everything except the waffles until light and fluffy (using the paddle attachment). Spoon this mixture into a gallon ziploc bag and chill for at least 2 hours, or up to 2 days, taking it out about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve it.
When it's almost time to serve the cheesecakes, toast the mini-waffles, well done. Separate them and place them on a serving tray.
Cut off one corner of the ziploc bag of cheesecake and pipe a generous dollop onto each waffle. Sprinkle additional pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon over the top, for garnish, and serve!
(*I like to keep this cheesecake dip a little on the less-sweet side, since the dippers and whipped cream are sweetened also. Feel free to add a bit more sugar, to taste, if you like things sweeter!)
If you’d rather not do the piping, you can just serve this as dip with toasted mini Eggo waffles, graham crackers and gingersnap cookies on the side!
