Apple Pumpkin Butter

by C. Cindy , Avondale, AZ on Feb. 2010

Easy to make and so delicious. I tried it in the crockpot as suggested by the previous baker and she is right... it's good!

I have been searching for a couple of years now for a pumpkin butter recipe. I figured it had to be easy. Now I've found it and can share it with friends and family. It's not overly sweet and retains its pumpkin flavor. Thank you!

A good recipe

This is a good recipe, with just the right amount of sweetness--and low calorie, too!

Wonderful Spread

by D. Debbe , on Dec. 2009

My daughter had made this for Thanksgiving and I decided to try it. My tweak is to make it in my small crock pot. I cooked it on low for 5 hours. Perfect!
