How Can I Use Pumpkin Butter?
Pumpkin butter is so versatile. It is delicious on rolls and toast but there are so many other things that you can use it for:
- Stir some into your oatmeal, or pancakes, or waffles for pumpkin flavored breakfasts.
- Pipe it into doughnuts or pasties for pumpkin filling.
- Spread it on cookies, or stir it into hot chocolate.
- Maple Pumpkin Butter also makes a great gift. I put some in little containers and took it around to friends.
- Make a huge batch and save it for later! It stays good in the fridge for about 3 weeks, or can be frozen for a year.
