This pumpkin spice honey butter recipe tastes amazing on toast or served at parties as a fall dip.
Since it is finally September, I have been drowning myself in all things pumpkin! Pumpkin spice and everything is nice, right!? So when I found myself with some leftover pumpkin puree from another recipe, I knew it was time to make this little idea I’ve had bouncing around in my head for a while, this Pumpkin Spice Honey Butter recipe.
A Perfect Way To Use Leftover Pumpkin Puree
One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake. I love the smell of freshly baked deliciousness, and on a cold day, baking is the best way to warm up the house.
So what do you need when you have a slice of fresh baked bread in your hand? Make honey butter of course! And the only way to make honey butter even better is to turn it into a pumpkin pie that you can spread on your warm slice of bread.
Pumpkin Spice Butter
I’ve always loved putting cinnamon in honey butter. Cinnamon and honey were a match made in heaven. So it wasn’t a big leap to sub it out for pumpkin pie spice. But it wasn’t quite as pumpkiny as I was dreaming of (pumpkiny is totally a word right?).
To get that true pumpkin flavor I tossed in some pumpkin puree and oh my, the pumpkin spice honey butter was perfect.
How To Use Pumpkin Butter
One taste and my whole family was hooked. We have been enjoying it all week. It’s delicious smothered over a slice of our favorite whole grain seed bread. It’s fantastic as a light dessert on a leftover dinner roll.
My daughter even thinks it’s perfect just eaten with a spoon. I am waiting for a cooler day to make a big bowl of chili and cornbread so we can spread it all over that too! Our whole family is now slightly obsessed with this new honey butter recipe.
The Perfect Hostess Gift
And since this recipe is so easy to make, I can’t wait to use it as a hostess gift for a fall or Thanksgiving dinner. Or package it up in a mason jar and make some of this adorable farmhouse fall decor pillowcase for the perfect gift for a friend or teacher.
I promise anyone who appreciates pumpkin is going to go crazy for this pumpkin spice honey butter recipe. So go ahead and share the love!
