I made this out of necessity. It was Halloween and I was making Pumpkin Martinis. My recipe said that Trader Joe's stocks Pumpkin Butter. With all the ingredients ready I dashed out to TJ's and they told me I was a few weeks early for their supply of Pumpkin Butter.

I googled it and found a very easy recipe. It was great in the martini and we are still using it on our toast.


1 can (29 oz.) pumpkin puree
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat/high heat and bring to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to low/medium and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring frequently.
