Easy Pumpkin Butter

Dark, rich, and deliciously easy homemade pumpkin butter ready in 30 minutes
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 2- 15 ounce cans pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • a pinch of kosher salt


  1. Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally to keep it from sticking and scorching. Simmer for 25-30 minutes or until thickened and a rich dark brown in color. 

  2. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. 

  3. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. To preserve longer than this, ladle into freezer jars and freeze.
