Delicious pumpkin puree combined with fresh spices make this spread the perfect Fall recipe.
By Kelly Hunt
Since Fall is now officially upon us and Halloween is right around the corner, I chose to make this delicious Spiced Pumpkin Butter that goes with, well…pretty much anything.
This was super easy to make and yields plenty for jarring (IF you can limit yourself to just one serving). The end result?? My kitchen smelled AMAZING and I had a yummy breakfast (or snack) to look forward to each day after.
I’ve never made pumpkin butter, apple butter, really anything butter-related ever so this was a fun recipe to play around with! You won’t be disappointed, it really tastes amazing and is perfect for the Autumn season. I loved the combination of flavors from cinnamon, pumpkin to delicious nutmeg, and tastes best nice and warm. This also makes great little gifts for your friends and family. Hope you love this just as much as I did.
