Pumpkin Butter

Maybe this is coming early. Definitely is. But has anyone started their Christmas Shopping yet? I have some friends who are almost done..and since I haven’t even begun, I already feel behind. I mean it IS still October..Halloween is a week away, then we have Turkey Day to think about..can’t we put the breaks of xmas…lets not rush this holiday season..I want it to laaast! It already goes to quick & its my most favorite time of year..I love everything about it!

The music.

The atmosphere.

The colors.

The clothes.

The movies.

The smells.


The celebrations.

The Feeling in the air. (I’m a cheese..I just get so giddy!)

Eggnog. (I’ve actually already purchased my first bottle. oops)

The Lights!

Window Shopping. (I do most of my actual xmas shopping online..but I loove walking around the chaos of the mall with a latte in hand looking and watching people)

Basically the list is endless…..I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS! 😀

Pumpkin Butter

But lets focus on Halloween and apples and pumpkin a bit longer shall we?!

Pumpkin Butter

This Pumpkin Butter is scrumptious! It is so silky, smooth, and flavorful, it is literally amazing being eaten right off of a spoon! Its quick to make, no fuss, and has amazing results! You can spread it on your toast (try it on cinnamon-raisin toast, oh em gee.) You can make homemade toaster strudels with just a sheet or two of puff pastry! I did this and it was perfect…roll out the puff pastry nice and thin, give a good scoop of pumpkin butter, top with another piece of pastry, seal and bake! Oh they were delicious! The pumpkin butter didn’t gush out..they were a nice golden brown, and great breakfast to pop into the toaster!

You could use pumpkin butter on toast, in your oatmeal, dip your fruit, spoon into some yogurt and granola, spread it on your pork…there are so many things you can do with Pumpkin Butter! Enjoy!
