Pumpkin Butter Dip

Pumpkin Butter Dip

I’ve been dipping my way through the month with my new snack recipe, Pumpkin Butter Dip!

During the fall months I usually stock up on different varieties of apples, and whenever I am snacking on an apple, I usually dip it in a nut butter. 

This recipe was created on a pancake Sunday, I thought it would be fun to swirl pumpkin puree and almond butter into the pancakes. And, since I had an open can of pumpkin puree, I decided to mix a dollop of that with my usual almond butter and this recipe was born

The taste of fall–Pumpkin Spice

What is pumpkin spice?

Pumpkin pie spice mix is traditionally made with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, although many homemade recipes (including the recipe below) include ginger and allspice, too. While many people associate beloved pumpkin pie recipes with Thanksgiving meals, Scientific American reports that pumpkin pie probably wasn’t served during Colonial times: “While we believe that American colonists were eating pumpkins simply because it would have been a prolific food source, their ovens would not have been capable of creating modern crusts as we know them.” Pumpkin spice’s modern rise to fame began in the 1950s, when McCormick first sold a blend on supermarket shelves. Since then, home cooks and popular brands alike have discovered myriad ways to make the most of these flavors, from cult-favorite lattes to family-secret pumpkin spice cookie recipes.
