Whipped Pumpkin Goat Cheese

Remember yesterday when I was all like, "when did pumpkin steal apple's fall thunder?" Well now I'm part of the problem. Pumpkin madness continues!

My family has caught the whipped feta fever and now insist that I bring it to nearly every gathering. It had gotten out of hand, so I thought I'd try a autumnal variation. It certainly delivers on easy and who doesn't love goat cheese? I'm pretty sure it was born to marry pumpkin, because the sweet and tangy play are a beautiful pair.

This ended up being a celebration of all things Trader Joe's. It happens... particularly in the cheese case. And I hit the JACKPOT with their seasonal pumpkin, cranberry crackers. They're gingerbready and amazing. Get them or live with a life of pumpkin regret.

Whipped Pumpkin Goat Cheese
1 log goat cheese, softened
1/4 cup whipped cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
Salt and pepper

Combine goat cheese, whipped cream cheese, pumpkin, salt and pepper in a food processor. While processor runs, stream in olive oil until smooth.

Serve with crackers and dried cranberries. Enjoy.
