I really had a great time baking and swapping stories with my friend that Sunday afternoon as we baked our scones and coffeecake. That wasn’t all we made. We whipped up an easy one filled with pumpkin puree goodness, a pumpkin dip.
I’ve been quite surprised this month that I have enjoyed all the pumpkin recipes I have been making, but I was most wary of this one so far. I have always been in the ranks of people who do not enjoy whipped cream. I prefer my milkshakes and coffees without and eat around the whip cream frosting on cakes. I am a buttercream frosting lover instead. I tried a bit off the spatula at first and it was okay, but I wasn’t sold. The dip alone was not going to be gobbled down then and there by me.
My friend informed me that I should try it with vanilla wafers or graham crackers and so I packaged up some to take home. It stayed in my fridge for a week untouched, I gave myself the excuse that I didn’t have crackers. As the week went on my fridge got emptied and it was time to make a grocery trip finally. I made sure to pick up some graham crackers. I was going to give this worthy try. Groceries tucked away I pulled out the dip and broke apart a cracker and dived in… It was delicious!
Proceeding to get excited I had Ben try it also and I talked about how after all this time I’ve found a whipped cream food I could enjoy. I probably got more joy out of expanding my food horizons than eating it that night. But hey I’m making progress and loving that I now have one more dish I can enjoy with others. What is your favorite whip cream treat or are you generally like me?
