Although we’re already at the end of October, it hasn’t quite started to feel like fall in Southern California yet. With temperatures still in the 80s, what better way to get in the fall mood than with pumpkin-flavored everything! We picked up a dozen bagels from Panera and decided to whip up some pumpkin cream cheese to go with. We followed Better Home and Gardens recipe and were pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out! We strayed from the recipe a bit, using a little less pumpkin pie spice as to not completely over-power the cream cheese flavor, and since we didn’t have an electric mixer, we just threw all of the ingredients into the blender, and it worked like a charm!
