What do we recommend putting it on? Everything.

OK fine, we’ll be more specific. Here are five delicious ways to use Land O Lakes® Pumpkin Pie Butter Spread in your fall cooking. (And a bonus sixth: these Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Oat Streusel)

5 Fall Pairings with Land O Lakes Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread

1. Roasted Carrots

Skip the normal butter-and-sugar glaze on roasted carrots. Instead, roast the carrots in a hot oven until tender, then, right after you take them out of the oven, brush on a few spoonfuls of Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread. The butter spread will melt and infuse the carrots with sweet fall spices, and you’ll have an easy but vibrant side dish that kids and adults will love.

2. Pork Chops

Pork loves to be paired with spices and brown sugar, so cook your favorite cut of chops on the stovetop, then top them with some Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread. As the spread melts, it will mingle with the pan drippings for a delicious sauce that you can mop up with a piece of crusty bread.

3. Sweet Potato Gnocchi

If you’re looking for a tasty weekend cooking project, swap cooked sweet potatoes for regular potatoes in your favorite gnocchi recipe. Toss the cooked sweet potato gnocchi with Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread, and you’ve got the perfect fall dinner!

4. Pancakes

For a fall twist on the standard butter and maple syrup combo, spread Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread on pancakes hot off the griddle. It’s great for those who don’t have much of a sweet tooth, as the spread has just the right amount of brown sugar to add a touch of sweetness to your fluffy flapjacks.

5. Butternut Squash

An easy way to flavor fall’s favorite squash is to simply brush roasted butternut squash halves with melted Pumpkin Pie Spice Butter Spread. The spices will infuse everything, and each bite of tender squash will be butter and sweet.
