Crockpot Homemade Vanilla Pumpkin Butter is one of my favorite things to make around Thanksgiving. I love to spread the pumpkin butter on bagels, croissants or toast. My youngest son loves to dip his apple slices in the pumpkin butter. Makes for a great after school snack for him! This recipe is so easy to make too, all you have to do is put everything in the crockpot and let it cook away. Be sure to stir every once in awhile so it does not stick to the sides. I usually spray a light layer of non stick cooking spray around the crock.
