Morsels of Life - Spiced Pumpkin Butter

So, after making the Pumpkin Yeast Bread, I decided to make some pumpkin butter. Then I thought about pumpkin pie and how James likes all the spices. And then I saw some maple syrup. (In case you haven't figured out yet, this is how I often decide what goes into a recipe. :P) But really, doesn't some Maple Spiced Pumpkin Butter sound just grand on your slice of freshly baked Pumpkin Yeast Bread (or even the Spiced Pumpkin Bread)? I know it certainly added to mine!

What's your favorite butter flavor?

Got some extra pumpkin? Make your own spiced pumpkin butter, and sweeten it up with a bit of maple syrup for an additional layer of flavor!
