Fall is here and I can’t wait to wake up to a piece of toast lathered with a creamy homemade Slow Cooker Pumpkin Butter on a crisp.
Not going to lie, my cooking lately has gone from simple to crazy easy super fast 5-10 min meals.
Basically between tending to a demanding energizer bunny toddler and hungry infant, I am busy 95% of the day. And because it’s hard to cook with 100+ interruptions, I have pretty much given up on trying to keep things like they use to be and am tying to accept this new norm.
Our meals lately have been a combination of frozen leftovers, occasional take out, 3-5 ingredient recipes, 5 minute meals, slow cooker everything, lots of pasta, easy sandwiches, and popcorn/cheese/apple dinners.
Sometime I miss all the cooking I use to do but at the same time, I don’t want to miss a single moment with my tiny babies and husband right now. Plus once my girls are older, I’ll have plenty of time for cooking adventures.
But just because our life revolves around diapers, milk, and trips to the playground, it doesn’t mean I can’t treat myself with something I love, right?!
Logic behind today’s recipe….
Fall = Pumpkin
Pumpkin = Pumpkin Butter
Pumpkin Butter = AMAZING
Here’s the deal on this awesome pumpkin butter, it’s honestly harder to NOT make it! Yep that’s right! You would be doing yourself a disfavor by making it! As usual, my trusty slow cooker does all the work. All I did was dump the ingredients in and press the start button.
The result are several jars of creamy pumpkin goodness! Enough to last me a few months or to gift to friends. My creamy pumpkin butter is perfect on everything from toast, yogurt or ice cream to a pumpkin latte.
This fall I’m treating myself to some finger licking slow cooker Pumpkin Butter!
