Maple Pumpkin Butter

Five ingredient cozy maple pumpkin butter, you have my heart.

I know I have a lot pumpkin recipes on my site, and I know when you talk about pumpkin these days (particularly pumpkin spice), you get a big eye roll. 

But you know what?  I love pumpkin anyway. 

It may be overdone in a lot of ways these days, but I will never stop craving it and cooking with it and eating it in both traditional and new recipes.

Maple pumpkin butter – you have my heart!

Traditional meaning pumpkin pie and new mostly meaning this new recipe and these pumpkin chocolate chip mini scones.  Oh and don’t forget about my pumpkin donuts, pumpkin pasta and pumpkin crumb bars.

Anyway, it’s mind blowing, and it’s only 5 ingredients and takes 10 minutes to whip up.

Just 5 ingredients get you this amazing fall spread

All you need is real butter, pumpkin puree, real maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.  You may even have all 5 of these ingredients in your pantry and fridge right now.  Wouldn’t that be cool? 

And if you’re wondering what in the world you’d do with it, I got your back:

1) toast 2) bagels 3) rolls 4) muffins 5) english muffins 6) CINNAMON ROLLS 7) waffles and pancakes 8)

I don’t know, basically anything else that goes well with pumpkin and maple and cinnamon and butter.  You can totally be creative.

It’s basically a buttery maple pumpkin spread that makes carbs taste even more delicious.

  1. Loved this recipe. I like your method of making scones without kneading them. May substitute butterscotch chips instead to chocolate chips next time.
