I went on a pumpkin butter spree this week. Recipes via Leslie's lovely blog.
I did pumpkin honey butter and plain ol' pumpkin butter (a lot like apple butter).
Oh.my.word. They were both so good and so easy.
I even went old school on whipping...
I kept going back and forth between the two, trying to decide which I liked better.
Then I realized I should probably jar up this delicious stuff and spread the joy (before spreading my waistline).
Now a couple of little pumpkin surprises I have discovered.
From last week's pumpkin cream sandwiches, I had some leftover pumpkin and some leftover cream cheese icing. Mix that stuff together, and you've got yourself a scrumptious bagel shmear.
Stick with me on this second one. I've been doing turkey melts for lunch this week, and I decided to try using the pumpkin honey butter instead of regular. (I don't even think of making grilled cheese sandwiches or melts without butter. Sue me.) Then...I added thin slices of squash. So it's pumpkin butter slathered...er, lightly spread on the bread, pile on deli turkey, cheese, squash, and grill it for about three minutes on each side.
You'll thank me later.
