    These were tasty and easy to make. I made a cream cheese icing for the top that was better than plain vanilla frosting. Overall good and would probably try again with apple butter as well.

    I have not tried this recipe. But if someone does have a pumpkin butter recipe, could you please post it. I have never seen pumpkin butter on our shelves here in Canada.
