This is better if you make the dip several hours in advance and let the flavors meld in the refrigerator.
You will need:
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese (or Tofutti cream cheese)
½ cup brown sugar
1 15 oz can of Pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp. Spirits & Spice Bourbon Balsamic
½ tsp kosher salt
6 green apples sliced
1 tsp. lemon juice or Spirits & Spice Calamansi Balsamic
Create a lemon bath by combining the lemon juice or Calamansi Balsamic in 2 cups of cold water in a bowl. Core the apples and slice them. As you slice the apples, place them in the lemon bath. This will stop them from browning.
In a medium bowl beat the remaining ingredients until smooth. Place in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve with the apple slices.
