I have bought Pumpkin Butter in the past and was excited to find a recipe for it. I made this and it was easy to make and so delicious on hot biscuits at breakfast.

I made the pumpkin butter yesterday. I tasted it this morning, putting several spoon fulls over my steel cut oats cereal, along with sauted apples. WOW, delicious, so good, easy to make. I'm planning on making this again this week to give to friends and family as gifts.

Super easy and delicious!!

I've been making apple butter for years and I wanted to try pumpkin butter this year. This recipe sounded quick and easy so I went with it. Glad I did. My husband and all three of my children love it! The only thing I did differently is add about 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg. This recipe has already been added to my favorites!
