Let’s first state a known fact Diamonds! Bread and butter is just absolute heaven on earth. It truly is. There’s never going to be anything more fulfilling, comforting, soft, crusty, and decadent all at the same time. It seems as though you can never get anything better than a warm fluffy piece of bread smothered in softened, salted butter but you definitely can; with my fall filled compound butter! Of course this is a sweeter rendition then what you’d typically think of when you’d imagine bread and butter with dinner or even just for a sensational snack, but it seriously works and it’s so right for the season of Autumn! Compound butters may sound complicated as if it could have a long process, although it totally does not and it couldn’t be more simple to concoct.
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Two sticks of salted butter. You don’t want to use unsalted butter. You want to have that salty bite when it comes to using it to pair with breads.
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar.
- 3/4 cup of pumpkin pure.
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.
Mix all of the ingredients together for a few minutes until it is extra smooth with a hand mixer.
Serve it up in a Fall themed bowl alongside some delicious homemade bread from your favorite bakery.
This is a great butter to make for holiday gatherings this Fall, dinner parties, or just to munch on while you sip some chai tea cuddled up on the back porch to watch the leaves fall.
This compound brown sugar and pumpkin butter is also great to use on warmed muffins, pastries, and surprisingly to make a festive grilled cheese! I know it sounds crazy, but trust me! Butter the outside of the bread the same way you normally would when making a grilled cheese and use this pumpkin butter to do it! It’ll be phenomenal! I promise.
