How to make Pumpkin Butter
Whip butter in a stand mixer until stiff peaks have formed and the butter is creamy.
Slowly add the remaining ingredients mixing until smooth.
Serve and enjoy!
The best thing about this pumpkin butter is that, unlike most recipes, it doesn’t need to be cooked. I’ve seen many recipes that call for the mixture to be cooked in a crockpot for several hours before the Pumpkin Butter is ready to eat. Even though the slow cooker is an easy way to cook something like Pumpkin Butter or apple butter because you can set it and forget it, I still like the no-cook method better!
Some great ways to serve this Pumpkin Butter are on toast, biscuits, or even on top of waffles or pancakes! It’s a great spread and is the perfect topping for fall. It really reminds me a lot of a creamy pumpkin pie the way the flavors meld together.
I also love the fact that this recipe doesn’t have any refined sugar, and instead uses maple syrup to sweeten it. Maple syrup is much easier on your body and is a much better, and more natural way to sweeten recipes like this. The maple flavor is actually a nice touch since this is such a fall-themed recipe. Now that you have this recipe, head over and make Pumpkin Sweet Rolls with it!
Would you eat Pumpkin Butter or do you prefer the traditional apple butter instead? I’m glad I gave this recipe a chance! It’s so simple and a must-make in my house!

This looks so good! I’ve had apple butter before but I’m not sure I’ve had pumpkin butter. I’m going to have to give this a try!
Could you use honey instead of the maple syrup as a sweetener?
