the great pumpkin food challenge: pumpkin butter

i know almost everyone knows about pumpkin butter, so it's not a totally unique find, but it is one of my favorites and a tell tale sign that fall is here. i bought trader joe's pumpkin butter for the first time last fall and have been hooked since. 

trader joe's pumpkin butter
found at: trader joe's
price: $2.29
weight watchers+ points: 1 per 1 tablespoons

what i like about tj's pumpkin butter (aside from the price) is that it's fat free and it's taste like pumpkin pie in a spread.  although there isn't much nutritional benefit (meaning no fiber or protein), it is a nice treat to schmear on a piece of bread, roll, bagel or even between two nilla wafers.

pumpkin butter on yeast rolls. yum!

i haven't experimented with any recipes yet, but if you have, i'd love to hear what you've made. share recipes, please! good food (and sharing) makes the world go round. :)

** disclaimer ** i was in no way compensated by any of the above companies of the above products, nor asked on behalf of these companies to review or purchase these products. everything in the great pumpkin food challenge was found and purchased on my own free will in my personal quest to find and taste everything pumpkin flavored this fall. all comments, tastes, etc are a reflection of my own unique tastes and personality!
