30 Days of Pumpkin-Day Eight: Pecan Pumpkin Butter

How is it that I'm not the biggest fan of Pumpkin butter OR Pecan butter, but this pecan pumpkin butter from the Messy Baker is somehow magically delicious.

Yeah, let's combine 2 somethings, both made of things that you like, that turn into something you don't like, but you combine them and it is suddenly amazing.  That's some kind of new crazy math.  I have no idea how it works.  Who really cares?!  Make this and shove it in your face.  It's bloody scrumpdiddilyumptious.

Pecan Pumpkin Butter from The Messy Baker
1/2 c toasted, salted pecans
1/4 c pumpkin puree
2 T maple syrup
1/2t  pumpkin pie spice (I used apple pie spice just to be difficult)
1/4 t vanilla extract

Blend the pecans in the food processor until they get smooth and creamy. Add everything else, making sure to scrape down the sides.  Blend until combined and smooth.  This spread is great on toast, honey wheat pretzels, apples, graham crackers and, well, that's all I've tried.  Go crazy!
