What is Pumpkin Butter?
First off, you may be asking yourself, what exactly is pumpkin butter? Similar to apple butter, it’s a decadent spread loaded full of condensed pumpkin spice flavor!
“Butter” makes sense to me as it’s used to be spread across toast, baked into desserts or breads or swirled into drinks. Just like real butter, it’s decadent and adds delicious flavor!
When it comes down to it, Pumpkin Butter is pumpkin pureé cooked down with sweetness and spices to make a condensed pumpkin spice spread. Easy peasy and oh-so delicious!
How to Use
After simmering a batch of this Pumpkin Butter on your stovetop, you may be wondering on how to use it! Well, spread across some cinnamon toast is a good place to start! Here are some other ideas on how to use Pumpkin Butter:
