Pumpkin Schmear – Easy Recipe

September 18, 2012 by 54 Comments

Easy recipes are always the best.  I know you’re going to love this Pumpkin Schmear so much.  Not only because it’s an easy recipe, but because it’s a great way to make breakfast special even on a rushed morning.

Have you stalked up on Canned Pumpkin yet!?!  I grabbed several last time I was grocery shopping and I know I’ll be back for more before long.  My family craves Pumpkin recipes this time of year!  Gather these ingredients to make your own Pumpkin Schmear…

Beat the cream cheese.  Then, add the remaining ingredients and beat with mixture until well combined.  Easy and Tasty Pumpkin Schmear, ready to enjoy after chilling in the refrigerator for an hour.  Serve on a toasted bagel.

    I’m in the UK & one of the things I miss most from my US vacations is pumpkin butter & pumpkin pie. This recipe sounds delicious & I’ve just discovered that Amazon UK sells cans of Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin. I feel the need to purchase a can, or several. 🙂
