Autumn Butter

the fall frenzy continues, not sure why my mind is so stuck on autumn these days...
today I ran across this awesome sounding recipe for something called Autumn Butter. Ive never even heard of Autumn butter before but it sounds really yummy.
I think it would taste great on just about anything that goes with brown sugar and cinnamon. We love cooked winter squash for dinner. This would be great on squash, or on a bagel, or even on cornbread!

Easy Autumn ButterIngredients:
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 cup softened butter

Beat the brown sugar, pumpkin-pie spice whipping into the softened butter. Keep refrigerated.

At the same time I found this apple butter recipe. Imagine how good this would make your house smell cooking in the crockpot on a dreary afternoon~
Crockpot Apple ButterIngredients:
8 cups applesauce
4 cups sugar
4 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons allspice
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons cloves
Stir all ingredients together well in a large bowl. Transfer to a crockpot and cook, UNCOVERED, on high for six to seven hours. It isn't necessary to stir it. Cool and place into containers. Keep refrigerated or may be frozen.
