Autumn is the best time of the year. In our house, we put up our Halloween decorations as soon as the kids go back to school. We burn fall candles, buy a cinnamon broom from the store, and of course, eat pumpkin-flavored treats! This recipe is for those who live for fall, and can’t get enough of it. I hope you enjoy this Cinnamon and Spice Hone Butter!
This butter isn’t just for pound bread! Plain bagels, white toast, or pumpernickel bread are other options for this sweet spread. It’s a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth without cooking a whole desert!
The first time I had this recipe was actually at a friend’s house. I don’t remember the occasion but it was a week or two before Thanksgiving. I was grabbing something out of the fridge for my girlfriend when I asked what was in the covered mason jar. She said it was homemade pumpkin butter. When I gave it a try I immediately fell in love. Over the years I have changed a few things and now it is a staple in our household this time of year!
When I was making this recipe my own I made a few mistakes that I want to keep you from making. The biggest one is that when the recipe calls for pumpkin puree, that doesn’t mean pie filling. You may be able to substitute them in pies but for this recipe, it should be the puree. Pumpkin pie filling has a different consistency and your butter won’t whip correctly. Believe me!
Like normal butter, this butter needs to be refrigerated. I normally put it in a mason jar when I’m finished, but you can use whatever container you like. Sometimes it can be tough to get the butter into the container, so I sometimes spoon it into an icing bag (or a ziplock bag and cut the corner off) and squeeze it into the jar!

- ½ Teaspoon of pumpkin Spice Seasoning
- 1 Teaspoon of vanilla
- ¾ Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 6 Tablespoons of pumpkin puree
- 5 Tablespoons of pure Southern Honey
- 2 sticks of salted butter
This is another recipe that doesn’t involve a lot but it’s still a good idea to meal prep! When you are ready to go, grab a medium to large mixing bowl and start whipping the butter. Then add in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and ⅓ rd of the pumpkin puree. As it all starts to blend together, continue to add the rest of the puree. Once that all seems evenly mixed, you can add in the vanilla and the Pure Southern Honey. Continue to whip until it reaches the desired consistency. After that, put it into your favorite mason jar or container and refrigerate until you are ready to serve!
