How To Make easiest pumpkin butter

  • 1
    Scrub and cut the pumkin in half and seed. Place pumkin skin side down on a baking sheet and back for about 25 minutes at 325 deg. I add a bit of water on the cookie sheet to keep the pumkin from drying out.

    Next, place sugar and pumkin pie spice in the crock pot and turn on high.

    When pumkin is cool enough to handle, scoop the meat out and mash. Add to the crock pot and mix. No need to completly wear you self out. Mixing will be easier when the mixure starts cooking down.

    After about 2 hours, stir the mixure and lower temp. to low. Cook over night.
