Are you getting tired of the same plain butter for Thanksgiving? Want something to wow, your family and friends? Flavoring butter is always a simple and easy way to go, especially if your not a big cook. Most upscale restaurants flavor there butter with different things at different times of the year. And pumpkin butter is the best thing to go on warm buttermilk biscuits during Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Tools your will need:
1 rubber spatula
a dish to put the butter in
8oz butter, unsalted
1/8c pumpkin puree
1tsp. pumpkin spice
– beat your butter with your mixer until it is soft and there are no lumps.
– Add in your puree and spice, beat again until combined
– All done! Good job, you now have Pumpkin Butter, just put it in the desired dish.
Don’t get scared if you don’t have Pumpkin spice. Its easy to make, all you need is:
1/2 tsp cinnamon,ground
1/4 tsp ginger, ground
1/8 tsp allspice, ground
1/8 tsp nutmeg, ground
Just mix together, and you have a new spice to add to your cupboard. This makes a good bit, so don’t dump all of this in to the butter. Once mixed, just use one (1) teaspoon of the spice.
Now if your feeling really fancy, you can put the butter in a piping bag with a medium sized round tip and pipe little round balls on to a piece of parchment paper. Put the parchment paper on a cookie sheet and put in the fridge. Now everyone has there own little pumpkin butter ball.
If you do know how to pipe well and have a small/medium star tip, you can put about 3/4 of the butter in a small bowl. Put the rest of the butter in the piping bag with the tip and pipe rosettes on top of the butter in the bowl.
Either way that you present your home-made pumpkin butter, your family and friends will love it. Enjoy!
