Pumpkin butter has got to be one of my trademark fall recipes. Along with my apple butter, apple pie, pumpkin logs, oh the list goes on... but fall, oh the joy of being in the kitchen in the fall.
This delicious recipe is made from fresh roasted pumpkin puree... but canned pumpkin puree can be used as well. (Make sure you're not using pumpkin pie mix.)
Use your pumpkin butter in yogurt, make a peanut butter, pumpkin butter sandwich, add a dollop to your morning oats, spread on a bagel, make it a smoothie. Not only is it delicious, but pumpkin has many many health benefits as well!!
