Homemade Pumpkin Butter | I’m Lovin’ It


No doubt, every October my life is taken over by pumpkin.  Between the grinning jack O’lanterns lining the porch, the pie pumpkins at the farmers market and cans of pumpkin in my pantry, the orange squash is a symbol that fall is here!  My favorite time of year!

There are so many great pumpkin recipes out there, it’s such a versatile ingredient!  From pumpkin pies and milk shakes to pumpkin pasta and chili.  No doubt you can cook with pumpkin as many ways as you decorate with pumpkins!

Easy and Delicious Homemade Pumpkin Butter recipe at

One fall several years ago I was gifted a jar of the most delicious homemade pumpkin butter.  I’m pretty certain I polished off that jar all by myself in a matter of a few short days.  A few years later I was surprised to find out how ridiculously easy it is to make my own pumpkin butter.  Now, I make at least one batch each fall.

Of course pumpkin butter is delicious on a big thick crunchy piece of toast, english muffins, or homestyle biscuits, but I’ll let you in on a little secret……..slather a crisp buttery Ritz cracker or a graham cracker with pumpkin butter and it’s like eating a little pumpkin pie!  OH is it ever so good this way!

 Last night I made a batch of pumpkin butter while I cooked dinner…..that’s how easy it is!  Now I need to run to the store for crackers.

    Oh goodness, Cheryl! You totally just blew my mind with the homemade pumpkin butter. I purchased PB from TJ’s a few weeks ago and that was the first time I’ve ever had it. Life changing 😉 we love it! Thanks for hosting!

    Thanks for the fabulous party, Cheryl! The pumpkin butter sounds delicious! I found Wilton makes pumpkin spice candy melts. I linked up some pumpkin spice pretzel bites. I can’t get enough pumpkin this time of year! Have a great weekend!

    I’m so glad to read your post Cheryl. I too just made some Maple Pumpkin Butter for a baked brie recipe I created. The appetizer dish was fantastic but I have a pint of pumpkin butter I keep staring at in the fridge thinking ‘what now?!’ I really haven’t ever had pumpkin butter so my sense of what to do with it is a bit dim! Love all your ideas. They are delicious sounding and well-timed for me! Thanks!

    I used to agree with you on pumpkin butter being the best until a recent trip to William’s Sonoma. They had pecan pumpkin butter. Oh my goodness. I made a homemade version and linked it up here so you could see. I’ve been reborn. :) Thanks for a great link up party!

    hello there and thank you for your info
    – I have certainly picked up something new from right here.
    I did however expertise a few technical points using this site, as
    I experienced to reload the site many times previous
    to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK?

    Not that I’m complaining, but sluggish loading instances
    times will often affect your placement in google and
    can damage your high quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Well I’m adding this RSS to my email and could look out for a lot
    more of your respective fascinating content.
    Make sure you update this again very soon.
