If you have never baked with Muirhead Pecan Pumpkin Butter, I feel sorry for you! It has a pumpkin puree consistency and can be interchanged in a variety of recipes (just like you can substitute it for pumpkin puree in this recipe). It has an extra depth of flavor not found in regular pumpkin puree and I can't say enough good things about it!

You can get it at Williams-Sonoma (or just order it online!)...one of my favorite stores when I can splurge!
