Tis the season to be roll polly (enter ALL the holiday treats), and there's no tastier way to get there than with Pumpkin Butter. Butter on it's own is hard enough to resist, add pumpkin, honey, and other delicious-ness and forgettaboutit.
Let's get started.
Step 1: Recipe
1 stick of room temperature butter (8 tbsp or 4 oz)*
1/4 cup honey (local if possible)
2 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt (if using unsalted butter)
*try making your own butter (it's SUPER easy) with my instructable:
Step 2: 'Making It' Work
Put all the ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl and blend with a hand mixer (or a fork and lots of elbow grease) until smooth and fluffy.
Step 3: Get to Eatin'
Once mixed, the butter is ready to enjoy right away. (YUMMM!) Add it to your favorite (warm) baked good, to mashed sweet potatoes, or even your coffee!
If you have any left over (meaning unlike me you have will power), it can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for 6-9 months.
Happy (full figured) fall everyone!
