Homemade Pumpkin Butter

(All this talk of sweets and I had totally forgotten to share the recipe for homemade pumpkin butter! That's just wrong!)

From SkinnyTaste, I present: an uber delicious, multi-purpose homemade pumpkin butter! (Try this on toast, crepes, in your yogurt, or use to make pumpkin-spiced coffees, cream cheese spreads, or in a cheesecake!)


  • 3 1/2 C pumpkin puree, or (1) 29 oz. can - NOT pumpkin pie filling (*The really helpful tutorial I used to make pumpkin puree can be found here at Chef In You.)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 C apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 C packed brown sugar
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks (*You can use ground cinnamon, but the sticks are more festive.)
  • 1-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
  1. Combine pureed pumpkin, vanilla, cider/juice, spices, cinnamon sticks and sugar in a large saucepan; stir well.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Stir frequently!
  5. Adjust spices to your taste. 
Et voila!
