This is a quick and easy recipe that will show you how to make pumpkin butter in just over an hour!
Pumpkin Butter is an easy spread that can be used on everything from pancakes to dinner rolls and everything between! Make extra to give as presents, hostess gifts, or party favors during the fall months.
The season for pumpkin everything is upon us! It seems like at the stroke of midnight on September 30th every recipe magically changes to “pumpkin spice” something. More and more that start dates seems to be Labor Day weekend, but I am not complaining.
The irony is this fixation is that most of the recipes you see are just a spice mix that goes well with pumpkin. They don’t actually have any sort of pumpkin in, on, or around them. Craziness!
This recipe is an exception. Those spices go too well with pumpkin not to have some dang pumpkin in there. Pumpkin butter is actually made with pumpkin. Real pumpkin puree folks. WOW! But wait… it isn’t butter?
What is pumpkin butter? Surprise! Pumpkin butter doesn’t contain any actual butter. It is a mix of pumpkin puree combined with a few other ingredients.
This all depends on the recipe, but one thing is for sure, it should be smooth and velvety. When you think about it, it is more of an apple sauce type of consistency than actual butter.
Make sure you PIN Pumpkin Butter!
I like to make a homemade pumpkin spice so I can dial in the flavors that make me happy. If you don’t feel like doing that or don’t have the ingredients to do it, grab a pre-mixed jar at the store.
Pumpkin butter has a unique texture that is nice and smooth. The way to achieve this is to use the canned stuff. Now breathe a collective sigh of relief. I wasn’t going to make you break down and cook a whole pumpkin. Who has the time?!
Throw this in the food processor for a spin if you want a silky smooth texture.
I like to serve it on scones, muffins, pancakes, waffles, toast, baked sweet potatoes, and the list goes on. If you have something that needs a good slather of deliciousness. This is what you need!
But that’s not it! Pumpkin butter can be used in so much more than that and not just as a topping. You can make pumpkin milkshakes, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin sundaes!
Get creative those creative juices flowing and the sky will be the limit.
Looking for fun hostess gifts or party favors? This pumpkin butter recipe is your solution! Make a big batch, can them or jar them, and then decorate with lovely labels and colorful string.
