Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread Guys! What a weekend I had! Nashville was basically a blast and a half! It was incredible and I have so much to tell you. But I’m tired and just got home, so I’ll have to recap on Wednesday. AND, hello?! There’s a recipe I need to talk about!

I saw an Instagram picture that Jessica took a few weeks ago that had me go on a hunt. Do you know what it was a picture of? Take a guess! {This will be fun!}

No, it wasn’t her Sweet Potato and Honey Dinner Rolls.

No, it wasn’t her Snicker-Chip-Doodle Cookies, either!


You guessed it!

It was a picture of some Philadelphia Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese….in the tub…on the shelf at her local grocers, I assume. {Unless she picked up 47 containers, in which case I would be very jealous.}

FIRST OF ALL, who knew they made this kind?

And, SECOND OF ALL why has no one told me?

You’re all in some serious trouble…

Needless to say I went into a frenzy trying to get my hands on this stuff. I searched and searched, but no one seems to carry it ’round these parts. *Insert bad words here*

So, the next best thing would be to make your own. Because I’m all about taking lemons and turning them into lemonade.

Honestly, I’m really glad I made my own because {1} it’s really quite addicting {2} no preservatives {3} it’s REALLY GOOD on a bagel (who doesn’t love a good bagel and schmear?) and {4} I needed to use up all the pumpkin in my fridge. {Did I mention I opened another costco sized can of pumpkin a few days ago? Well, I did so be prepared for more pumpkin recipes.}

My homemade version of this Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread lasted about 36 hours in my fridge. We ate it by the spoonful and spread it on bagels. But mostly ate it by the spoonful because it’s basically like a pumpkin cheesecake minus the crust. A.MAZ.ING. And it takes exactly 2.4 minutes to make. Easy. Delicious. Addicting. That’s how I roll.

And if you can’t get enough pumpkin, here are a few other recipes that will help you get your fix! Enjoy!

    I just brought it for the first time at Trader Joe’s in Kansas, while I was visiting my daughter. Wonderful stuff.
    Happy to see there is a recipe to make my own since I live two and a half hours drive from the nearest Trader Joe’s.

    This is sooooooo good!! I made it yesterday….today all the bagels are gone. It’s pretty awesome with Quakes rice snacks! (and by the spoonful too….) Thanks again for a yummy recipe!

  6. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    I have GOT to make this! It looks like it would be perfect for spreading on a bagel, or even on a muffin or scone! Yum 🙂

  7. Arudhi@Aboxofkitchen

    Oh, you remind me that I haven`t started anything pumpkiny yet and it`s already fall! Thanks for sharing the recipe! By the way, I have an award for you in my recent post 🙂

    Yummy! I get so excited every year for the bagel place in town to carry their pumpkin cream cheese spread and bagels. But definitely nice to be able to make it at home!

  9. Erin

    I had no idea about this either! Looks so good! (Except that it also looks like something I might just eat directly instead of bothering with the whole taking the time to spread it on something!)

    I thought the same thing when I saw Jessica’s instagram! I’m not sure if we have it here in KC – I haven’t been looking.

    SO. MUCH. FUN. with you in Nashville. xoxo

    P.S. Nice schmear! 🙂

  11. Rachel @ Not Rachael Ray

    This looks great! I was inspired by Jessica’s Instagram photo too, but I made a slightly more sinful dip 🙂

  12. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    lol, did you see me tweeting at Jessica that day telling her that she should just make her own? How fun that you did it. Looks so good- my kiddo would go nuts for this. I posted a pumpkin spice latte today… so we’re on the same pumpkin wavelength!

    1. Lauren

      I thought she was going to post her own recipe for it but never did! Oh well! And, I am in love with everything pumpkin! LOVE it all!
