Pumpkin Honey Whipped Butter

Okay. That pumpkin recipe you’re about to bake?

Set aside a tablespoon of the pumpkin purée.

It will be fine. Your recipe doesn’t need it.

Or perhaps it does. I don’t know what you’re making!

But I do know, this is more important.

You’re going to need this on your toast tomorrow morning. Or today. For a snack. Or a dessert. Just SAVE THAT TABLESPOON and trust me.

I had another recipe planned to post today, but then I made this.

Plans changed quickly.

Pumpkin Honey Whipped Butter
Inspired by Confessions of a Recipe Junkie

1/2 stick (4Tbsp) of unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon honey
1 Tablespoon pumpkin purée
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl with a fork. Whip vigorously until well combined. (It will look nasty at first.) You could even use an electric mixer to really get it whipped up.
2. Store in refrigerator. Spread on hot toast or a bagel or an English muffin (try to make it something better than my very lame piece of toast–at least buy some quality bread). Or whatever you want!

Verdict: So yummy. I’m going to eat this for breakfast every day for the rest of my life.
Husband’s take: He didn’t try this yet. I literally just whipped it up, photographed it and wrote this post. I had to share, and I had to share quickly.
Changes I would make:
Difficulty: Easy!

  14. OH my Goodness! Does this look good or what!?! Can’t wait to whip it together and give it a try!

  15. I love honey butter and pumpkin so I know this will be delicious. Now I’m in the mood for cinnamon toast and I bet that would taste good with the pumpkin butter. I’m making this. Ooh I bet it would taste great in piping hot popovers as well.

  19. Rachel!! This looks sooo yummy. Forget saving a tablespoon – I’m headed out to buy pumpkin just for this purpose! Then I’m making pancakes and I’m going to use it all up and have to make more for my toast on Sunday. YUM!!

  20. I will totally let you smear that all over my face.

  21. I think I might be able to set aside a whole jar of tablespoons of pumpkin puree to make this, holy goodness looking!

  22. LOVE this! i love honey butter, i can’t imagine how good this is with pumpkin + spices.

  23. I think I may have to try this with my leftover frozen pumpkin from last fall. Eek! I was over zealous in my freezing of pumpkin. This looks delish!

  24. Amazing! Loving this idea! I did a pumpkin cream cheese spread but never thought to just mix it into straight up butter! Smart thinking!

  25. Seriously this sounds and looks amazing. Can’t wait to give this a try!

  26. What. Whaaaat. Why am I at work. I need to go home and make this right now and have second breakfast.

    Nobody would mind, right?

  27. I love you, Rachel! I was sitting here reading blogs trying to decide what to have for breakfast and then you show me! I’m going to follow suit and try it on a “very lame piece of toast” because that’s all I have and I’m not about to wait for better bread! I made a pumpkin recipe last night and have lots leftover, so this is perfect. Thanks!

  28. Ooooo why did you show me this! Now this is all I’m going to be eating. Can’t wait!
