Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread

Anyone else in the mood for "pumpkin spice" EVERYTHING in the fall?  I came up with this so I could get my fill of the season in the morning... because my pumpkin spice coffee isn't enough? This spread is so great on bagels, crackers, graham crackers, & pretzels. 

The easy recipe:

1 8oz tub of plain whipped cream cheese {the regular should work too! Whipped is just easier}
1/4 c. {heaping} of pumpkin puree
2-3 packed tablespoons of brown sugar {depending on how sweet you want it.  I was fine with 2.}
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

With a hand mixer, combine all ingredients & blend together.

I refrigerate mine in a mason jar & use by the expiration date on the cream cheese.
