"I made this for a lunch that I hosted. It was a nice light and cool dessert. Our guests raved about it. I served it with Vanilla wafers and graham cracker sticks, but it would be delicious with fresh apple slices for a lighter dessert."

"LOVE IT! Made it twice this season and can't get enough! I've used whipped cream cheese (mostly because its what I had on hand) and extra pumpkin (just because I love pumpkin), and kept the rest of the recipe the same and thought it was fabulous "as is"! We also served ours with sliced granny smith apples and no one complained it was too sweet as they gobbled it down. Definitely a keeper!"

"My Grandson Cole turned 11 earlier this month. He is the only one at home that likes pumpkin. He is in the 6th grade, so Grandma asked his stepmom if he would like me to make chocolate cupcakes for his class at school. I was making him one of those large cupcakes, so I put this pumpkin filling in the center. I put the top on and frosted it with chocolate frosting then I pasted the dip on top, crushed up cocoa puffs and being he dirt bike races I found a small dirt bike,and put that going up the side. His stepmom said she thought he had about 25 kids in his homeroom, but she called me back the next day because cole said he had 61 (he's in a charter school), she check with the school and he was right. She thought I could make cookies, but I was finished with the cupcakes. So I stopped at the bakery the next morning on my way out to the school to buy more. When I took it out I told him it had pumpkin frosting on it. He called me that night to tank me and he said he took his big cupcake home because he didn't want to share with his friends and that was the best cupcake in the world. (Moral for Grandparents-before you volunteer check with the school before you offer anything.)"
