This is my FAVORITE recipe for pumpkin butter. I started making this last year when I decided to cut back on my beloved (high fat and calorie) peanut butter. I spread this nice and THICK on a piece of toast and eat it for breakfast every morning, and I never get tired of it. I make mine slightly spicier than the recipe by rounding the little teaspoonsful instead of scraping them flat. Delicious stuff.

Made this as a gift and got lots of raves. Very fast and easy. I had some pumpkin pie spice open so I used 1 1/2 tsp of that plus the cloves.

Wow, this is incredible! So delicious! We dont have pumpkin butter in Germany but I was intrigued by your recipe and decided to try it. Boy am I glad I did. On its own I find it a tad too sweet but mixed with cream cheese its divine.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!

Wow! This is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I did omit the white sugar and it came out perfectly. I spread it over gluten free pumpkin pancakes and mixed a tsp into my coffee as another reviewer suggested. I will certainly be making this again and love the idea of giving it as gifts! Thank you!

Delicious! Very quick and easy. It has just the right amount of spice. I was afriad it would be too spicy, but I love it. I made it exactly as the directions stated, and it turned out great. Not sure why others needed to omit the water. Mine turned out wonderful. I made this on Thanksgiving morning for breakfast. We ate it with pumpkin bread. I have tried another pumpkin butter recipe that is pumpkin mixed with butter and a few other ingredients. I like this better. I'm glad I found this recipe. I like apple butter so I was sure I'd like this. I will be taking it to my family's thanksgiving dinner and see how they all like it. Thanks so much for the recipe.

OH MY GOODNESS! This stuff is delcious! I've never had pumpkin butter before, but I had some extra canned pumpkin so I decided to try it out. This is amazing and so easy to throw together. I just finished making it and the whole house smells like Fall. :) Thanks so much for the great recipe.

I tried this recipe just to use up some left over canned pumpkin. It is luscious! I halved the recipe and decreased the microwave time by a few minutes. It's very sweet, so I may cut the sugar a bit next time.

I am just finishing up our first batch, and thought this was great. It was my first time trying pumpkin butter. I did double the sugars, because I like things sweet. When I microwaved the sugar and water by the directions, it made hard candy because I had halved the water to make up for the extra moisture in the pumpkin puree I used. It all dissolved fine when I cooked it in the puree in the next step and stirred it well. I will make this again, it is delicious with butter on multigrain toast. My children like it, too. Thank you for the speedy recipe!

Yum! I actually made this on the stove instead of the microwave, but it was still very quick and easy to make. I also did not have allspice, so I just increased the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves by quite a bit instead (I like lots of spice, so I added more than the recipe calls for too). This is the first time I've had pumpkin butter, and I can guarantee it won't be the last! :)
