How to Make Homemade Pumpkin Butter
Because I love pumpkins and pumpkin recipes so much, today I’m sharing a really easy and delicious homemade pumpkin butter recipe (pssst… it is better than the Trader Joe’s version!)
It only take a few ingredients and I bet you have some of them on hand. Once you have all your ingredients assembled, it only takes about 15-20 minutes to make. Try it on fresh warm, toasted bread or bagels.
Add a few tablespoons of it to cream cheese and enjoy a sweet creamy dip with apples or give to friends as a delicious homemade gift. The possibilities are endless.
Hi Princess Pinky Girl fans! It’s Jill again from Craft Create Cook. It’s already mid-September and summer is starting to wind down. School is back into full swing (I’m dumbfounded how fast summer flew by) and now we are already starting to think a head to fall. I love fall. It’s one of my absolute favorite seasons.
I love everything about it: the colors, the smells, the weather getting cooler, the leaves and especially pumpkins!
I do love summer and hate to rush it, but here in gorgeous Northern Michigan when I live, there is just something wonderful about fall.
