Pumpkin Pie Butter

Monday, October 31, 2011

Here's a little secret, I have a thing for making homemade butter. It is surprisingly easy. With an electric mixer you can whip up your own butter in under 10 minutes. My favorite part is turning regular butter into compound butter by adding in different ingredients. I've made a tequila butter, jam butter, blue cheese butter, and tonight a pumpkin pie butter. 

You don't need to make your own butter, you can simply use a stick of the store-bought stuff. I've also eliminated the pumpkin puree from your typical pumpkin butter because, well I think it makes the butter too sweet and frankly I am not a fan of the texture. No worries though, this blend of spices will surly satisfy your pumpkin craving. 

1 lb butter (4 sticks or 1 quart of cream)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon 
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground all spice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/ 4 teaspoon salt 

Add spices to butter and mix until incorporated. Store in the refrigerator. 
I suggest spreading some love onto a biscuit, pancakes, waffles, or even a sweet potato!
