Lately I have been addicted to Williams-Sonoma’s Pecan Pumpkin Butter.  The only bad thing is it comes in a very tiny little jar which you can easily go through in a week if you have a house that is equally addicted to this yummy stuff as mine is.  With no time to head to the mall I decided to make a version in the luxury of my own kitchen.  Let’s just say the whole house was so happy not only to have more pumpkin butter but to smell the amazing butter cooking on the stove.  My wonderful husband was actually vacuum upstairs, as we prepare for our Thanksgiving visitors, and stopped the vacuum to yell downstairs what I was making.  He seem to finish vacuum very quickly once the news hit him what I was making.  And I had two little girls at my side asking for a bite.  I think Parker would have joined us too if he wasn’t outside enjoy the beautiful weather in the backyard.  So if you are addicted to Williams-Sonoma’s Pumpkin Butter you have to give this a try.  It’s super easy and really delicious….and you get a lot more in making this then the tiny little jar you get at Williams-Sonoma.  A great little treat for Thanksgiving morning too with a batch or warm biscuits.  Enjoy!!
