Notes:

I think that people just forget how tasty and good pumpkin pies are and after some time we all need a reminder. For me, creating this pie was a very good reminder and I am determined to make many more pies with various flavours. I feel like we can experiment with pies a lot and we can create something new and delicious. This is a great example for that because if people didn’t experiment we wouldn’t have pumpkin pie apple butter that is for sure. The best thing about it is that you don’t need to waste a lot of your time. This spread is very versatile! I brought it to a party and used the leftovers to make the following:

Hot Pumpkin Oatmeal:


Just add 2 tablespoons to your hot oats and you’ve got pumpkin oatmeal!

Pumpkin Smoothie:

Just add the following ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth: a frozen banana, 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Apple Spread, and ice to taste.

Pumpkin Overnight Oats
