    Thanks for sharing! This looks amazing. Question, where did you find the pumpkin butter?

      Hi Kat, I actually got the pumpkin butter at Marshall’s! But have seen it at a few large grocery stores on the East Coast too. You could also sub apple butter.

    I have a pecan pumpkin butter that I always keep in the house so I’m thinking about using pecans. What do you think?

      @KareninStLouis I think pecans would work perfectly. Let me know if you try it! -Jenny

    I want to make this but I don’t have a cast-iron skillet, can I usw something else, like a pizza stone?

    • Jennifer Rawn December 21, 2014, 4:44 pm

      @Donna, yes, you could use any oven-safe pan or tray. A pizza stone should work just fine. The cheese just needs to heat up so it’s melted and oozing. let me know how it turns out!

    My local cannery makes sweet potato butter, and that would be good too!

      @Lyn, I bet sweet potato butter would be fabulous! Let me know if you try!
