Makes 6 tortilla sandwiches
- 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin puree
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
- ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 12-count package of The Real Coconut Original Tortillas
- To make the pumpkin butter, heat the maple syrup in a saucepan on the stove until it comes to a boil. Continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring often.
- Add in the full can of pumpkin puree, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves and mix completely. Heat on low on the stove for another 5 minutes.
- Cool in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours before using.
- To make the tortilla jack-o-lanterns, take 2 tortillas and place one directly on top of the other lining up the edges.
- Using a kitchen shears (or a sharp knife on a cutting board) to cut a pumpkin stem out of the top.
- Place the bottom tortilla aside for a moment.
- Then using a sharp knife, cut out a jack-o-lantern face (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.) on the top tortilla.
- Spread 2 tablespoons of the pumpkin butter on the bottom tortilla.
- Place the top jack-o-lantern face tortilla on the bottom tortilla that has the pumpkin butter on it. Line up the stem. Enjoy!
- This is a great recipe to get the kids involved. An adult can start the cutouts in the jack-o-lantern face and then the child can use a safe knife to finish making the face.
- The pumpkin butter can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
- Another great option is to use the pumpkin butter as a dip with The Real Coconut Original Grain-Free Tortilla Chips - it tastes just like pumpkin pie!
