Ahh, pumpkin butter. It is rich and creamy and so delicious.
Pumpkin butter is just like apple butter – but with pumpkin. It is not a compound butter and has no actual butter in it. Instead, it is used like a butter.
- Spread it on toast
- Top pancakes, waffles
- Add creaminess and flavour to oatmeal
- Spread on bagels or muffins
- And so much more
It is so simple to make and you can easily control how sweet you make it.
These types of butters can be incredibly expensive in the stores. That’s why I make it myself.
For this recipe, I used canned 100% pure pumpkin puree. I do not used “Pumpkin Pie Filling” because it has added sugar and other ingredients.
I hope you give it a try. You will be glad you did. If you want to make your own pumpkin pie spice, here is a recipe.
