30 Days of Pumpkin-Day Five: Pumpkin Spiced Butter

I've made pumpkin butter before on this blog.  Am I reblogging?  No way!  That pumpkin butter was a sort of jam made of pumpkins, much like apple butter. 

This pumpkin butter from Style Sweet Ca is butter that has been flavored with pumpkin and spices! I think it's so much more tasty than the classic pumpkin spread.

Originally I tried to roll the butter in log forms, wrapped in wax paper, much like one would do when making flavored butters.  I do NOT recommend this.  The pumpkin makes the butter much too soft.  Put your whipped flavored butter in a lidded container.  You'll be much happier and it will be a lot easier to use.

Make sure that you emphasize to the people that you serve this to that it is not Pumpkin butter made from mostly pumpkin.  Mrblocko did not listen to me and put margarine on his toast first.  Don't be like him.  Eat your toast just like this:

One more word of advice: Don't be like me and try to whip your butter when it's not room temp.  The butter won't combine very well with the other ingredients.  Sure it will be tasty, but not as pretty as it could be.

Whipped Pumpkin Spice Butter from Style Sweet Ca
1 c butter, softened (don't try to skip this step)
1/4 c pumpkin puree

2 T honey
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/8 t clove

Whip butter with electric mixer on high 5 min (til lt and fluffy) with whisk attachment. Add remaining ingred. Whip again to combine.
