Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie

The addition of apple butter gives this pumpkin pie a slightly fruity flavor. I'm always happy to share reliable recipes like this. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

    This pie is perfect if you want a traditional pumpkin pie but won’t something a bit different.

    The best pumpkin pie ever! The apple butter just adds the right flavor and tones down the pumpkin a little. Our family really liked it!

    Although I prefer a fluffy-type pie, this one was pretty darn good. I like the flavor the apple butter adds to the pumpkin. Followed the recipe as is, and I don't think I would change anything when I make it again. Nummy!

    Have made this twice serving it to a number of different people with very positive reviews and have shared recipe with several. Really a "keeper" (not the pie, it disappears too fast; but the recipe).
