Reviews for Spice Cookies with Pumpkin Dip
""Soo yummieeei recently found one of best recipe site for all type of chicken recipeshttp://www.reciflix.com/#/category/appetizers/recipes""
"I love these!!!!! The dip too!"
"These cookies are amazing, and the dip is good too. I make them often without the dip and my family loves them. Definitely a keeper!"
"Made these for the holidays, as I thought the dip would add class to a cookie dessert. Didn't need the dip.. Everyone loved the cookie on it's own, and I had lots of dip left over.. Next time I think I will pass on the dip, although I personally had the dip and it was good."
"I've been making these during the holidays for about 5 yrs but I,(somehow!!), lost my recipe. I've been frantically searching the internet--the other recipes I found were similar but not quite right ... until I saw this one. Thank you for sharing! These cookies & dip are AMAZING. TIP: to keep the dip from being lumpy (from the cream cheese) make sure your ingredients are room temp. Any colder and you might have lumps - you want your cream cheese to be nice and soft. I've even microwaved mine for a few seconds, (no more), to make certain it was very mushy. Once the dip is mixed well you can refrigerate it with no problems."
