Cook Time 30 minutes


  • 2 15 ounce cans pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 cup pure Vermont maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar more if desired
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • Place all ingredients into a medium sauce pan over medium low heat. Stir well to combine. 
  • Bring mixture to a low boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 25-30 minutes, stirring frequently. This will thicken the pumpkin butter and allow the flavors to marry. 
  • Remove from heat and let cool completely. Add additional brown sugar to taste, if desired. 
  • Spoon pumpkin butter into an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use. Or divide into mason jars to give as gifts and refrigerate until giving.


Flavor will intensify and improve once refrigerated overnight.
