Fill your kitchen with the comforting scents of cinnamon, and maple syrup with this easy Pumpkin Spice Butter. In just three simple steps, you can whip up a batch of warm apple-pear-pumpkin butter to enjoy at peak pumpkin spice season. Or double the recipe to freeze—and savour!—for months.

The tart sweetness of the fruit pairs perfectly with creamy pumpkin (or squash!) and the gentle kick of chai spices (or pumpkin spice!). Spread this delicious Pumpkin Spice Butter on toast (we recommend Big 16), add a generous dollop atop a stack of waffles or pancakes, or bake it into muffins.

Make it on the stovetop on a rainy afternoon when you’re home for occasional stirring. Or go hands-free and let your slow cooker take care of it until all that fall fruit is soft and ready to blend into a smooth, buttery spread your whole family will love!
