Pumpkin Butter

Warning: This isn't the jarred jammy spread. This is good old-fashioned dairy butter mixed with pumpkin and seasonings to create a new holiday topping for toasts and sweet breads. I found the recipe in a Food Network magazine and thought it was the perfect way to use up the last bit of pumpkin in the fridge.

Pumpkin Butter
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 stick butter, softened
1/4 tsp. orange zest
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Mash all ingredients together. Spread on parchment paper, and shape into a roll. Refrigerate until serving. May be frozen for later use.
