Pumpkin Butter

I originally made this for the Pumpkin Yogurt Cheesecake Cups, but I am so glad I did. It is yummy on Cinnamon Raisin toast, delicious mixed into Waffle and Pancake batter, I'm even thinking of adding it to my yogurt with a little gronola as a snack tomorrow, or maybe even adding it to my oatmeal. There are so many tastey ideas.
