I might have mentioned before how much I love Williams-Sonoma and all of their cooking gadgets and (un)necessities.  And this time of year, they sell a magnificent jarred pecan pumpkin butter.  But at the rate that I can consume it, I’d need a small loan to fund myself through the season.  Not only that, but I have this thing about making things from scratch.

You know, that thing where you tell yourself that the calories don’t count if it’s home baked versus purchased at a store or restaurant?

Mmm-hmm.  These calories soooooo don’t count.

You’re probably wondering why there are chocolate chips and a loaf of pumpkin bread riding sidekick in these photos.  That’s because I used this spiced pumpkin butter to make the pumpkin bread, and it’s pretty much the best thing ever {recipe coming soon!}.

This chocolate chip pumpkin bread is wonderfully moist and flavorful, thanks to the addition of homemade pumpkin butter!

All you need are just a few ingredients and half an hour to make gourmet-tasting pumpkin butter at home, for just a fraction of what you would pay at the store.  Then spread it on bread, over yogurt and granola, in oatmeal, or on pancakes.

Or eat with a spoon.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
