This pumpkin butter is so good you can basically eat it with a spoon!  In fact, some of it in those bowls might have been eaten in that exact manner 😉

I don’t have any step by step photos for this recipe because there’s honestly just one “step”.  Add the ingredients to a pan, heat to a simmer, and simmer, stirring often for 20 minutes.  Done.  Take a spoonful to taste.  Repeat many times.  Hehe.  Speaking of step by step photos… do you guys like when I do those?  Or would you prefer to just have the final shots?  Let me know 🙂
