Recipe: Pumpkin Apple Butter

I got this recipe years ago from a friend and I honestly can't find the recipe. And I've googled it too. But I tried it again today from memory and it was totally yummy just the same :) I don't think it's very easy to mess up so spice it up however you like.

So here's my "off the cuff" recipe for Pumpkin Apple Butter

1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree
1 can unsweetened apple sauce (I used the pumpkin puree can to measure)
1/4 cup brown sugar
cinnamon and nutmeg to taste (I did about 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon)

Mix all ingredients in a medium sauce pan. Heat at medium to medium high (4-6 on my range) for about 5 minutes. Stir almost constantly. When it's thoroughly heated let it cool down a bit and serve. That's it!

How easy is that? It is so yummy on biscuits. And I'm tempted to try making fried pies with this as the filling. You might want to add more like 1/2 cup of brown sugar if you like it sweeter. I used unsweetened apple sauce so it didn't come out as sweet as the time I made it before. One time I tried apple sauce with cinnamon already in it. It's a very flexible recipe. The basic thing is equal parts pumpkin puree and apple sauce.

Makes a great little gift!
