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.

I love pumpkins and everything that comes along with them, too. Pumpkin pie? Yum! Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte? Yes, please! Homemade pumpkin spice cheesecake? Why, not!

To make your homemade butter, you just add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan, mix together and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes (stirring occasionally).

Let it cool and place in an airtight container (we love mason jars!)
