  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 9 whole pecans for garnish

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and pumpkin with electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and chopped pecans.
  • 2
    Spread cheese mixture on dinner plate or in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Cut 3 pecans in half lengthwise and position for eyes, place 5 whole pecans for mouth and 1 whole pecan for nose. Place remaining pecan on top for stem. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Serve with Bat Wings.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To toast pecans, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until pecans begin to brown, then stirring constantly until pecans are light brown.
  • tip 2
    If you like, scrap the jack-o'-lantern idea, and serve this dip in a bowl instead.
