Yummy Pumpkin Dip

This is an easy dip and just tastes like fall to me.  I'm sure you don't need one more thing to add to Thanksgiving dinner, but if you do...here you are.

Pumpkin Dip
15 oz can of pumpkin
8 oz of cream cheese - softened
1/2 C brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of cloves
1 1/2 T orange juice

Mix well, I use a hand mixer and serve with pepparkakors. {or ginger snaps}  I am from MN and we call them pepparkakors,  in TX I buy them at World Market and the brand is Nyakers.  So thin and crispy.  Yum!!  {My friend's mother is Swedish and makes homemade Pepparkakors and they are the BEST.  They involve a cookie press and a few other steps so I haven't attempted them yet.  The ones from WM are almost as good.
