  1. Yum! Thanks for sharing, I really have been looking for a good pumpkin butter recipe!

  2. I love stuff like this! thanks for sharing!

  3. I can DEFINITELY get behind pumpkin pie for breakfast!! YUM!!

  4. amazing! thanks!

  5. Hi, do you know how long it stays good for once you cook and store this. It looks super yummy and I will definitely have to give this a try, I was just wondering. Also LOVE YOUR SITE. Your awesome!

  6. I have toast every morning for breakfast…this would be awesome spread on it!

  7. Can I use fresh pumpkin purée instead of canned pumpkin

    • Yes! Fresh pumpkin puree might be a little thinner in consistency due to water content of the pumpkins, so just keep cooking the pumpkin butter until it thickens nicely.

  8. This looks like a great recipe! Any ideas how could I add this to an awesome cinnamon bread recipe I have?

    • Hi Cathy! I’m not quite sure how your cinnamon bread recipe goes, but if you end up rolling out the dough to cover it with a cinnamon mixture, I can only assume slathering some pumpkin butter on the dough, then cover it with your cinnamon mixture, then roll it up. That would be awesome! Or of course, you can always just make the bread according to your recipe, then cover a nicely toasted sliced of cinnamon bread with the pumpkin butter. :)

  9. I’ve never heard of spiced pumpkin butter. I feel like I’ve been missing out– this looks amazing!

  10. I love it, because I suppose it’s very healthy. But doesn’t it look a bit strange? Can I “improve the look” anyway? I just don’t seem to like only the look. Though, if it is great and tasty who ever cares? I believe I can cook it as soon as possible.

  11. Yummmmmmmm!!!

  12. Oh my goodness…. we will be eating this all fall and into winter! It made enough to share extra jars with family and friends. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe with us!

  15. Omg… Thank you for existing. You are my hero.

  16. do I cook it until it as thick as this looks? or will it thicken as it cools?

    Thank you so much, this is now a staple in my fridge. My super picky 3yo loves it with peanut butter in place of jam! Xo

  18. Your pumpkin butter recipe sounds amazing! I love pretty much everything pumpkin. I will be trying it substituted with squash. I grew up eating “pumpkin” pies to my surprise were not pumpkin at all. My grandma made her pies with squash which I prefer as they are a much milder in flavor than when pumpkin is used. It takes a little more effort to steam the squash but oh so much worth it. I will be looking forward to seeing your new recipes! Thank goodness I found your site!
