Ingredients

  • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

  2. Combine gelatin and water in a small bowl or cup and set aside.
  3. Ensure that cream cheese is at room temperature before proceeding. Place in a large bowl. Add first listed sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  4. Stir to combine using a firm rubber spatula. When completely smooth add pumpkin puree, flour, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves.
  5. In a saucepan bring to a boil 1/2 cup whipping cream, remove from heat, let cool for 3 minutes and add dissolved gelatin, whisk vigorously and add to above.
