THIS JUST IN: A couple of hours ago I was at Your Bella Life headquarters and finally met Jill of Glow Gluten Free.  You know those people who you hear so much about and in your mind you’re already friends??– Jill is one of those for me.  I’ve heard so many wonderful things about her and was thrilled to finally meet her for real.  Naturally there was instant affection but above and beyond that– we made some beautiful, sweet Gingersnap Cookie & Pumpkin Butter amazingness together!!

We were both there to film segments with Bella Beauty, Nikita Chopra.  I did a cooking segment (we made pumpkin butter.  it was awesome) and Jill showed up right after to talk about the heart and soul of her incredible brand, Glow Gluten Free.

When Jill realized what was going on she told me it was pumpkin pie day and had the amazing brain child to combine our creations!

So here it is, a little behind the scenes, sneak preview of my Pumpkin Butter Recipe.


  • 1- 15 oz can pumpkin puree (organic if possible)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 heaping teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (you can use 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/2 tsp all spice & 1/2 tsp ginger)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • Glow Gluten Free Ginger Snap Cookies


Mix ingredients together in a heavy pot and cook over low heat, stirring constantly. Cook until thick (i.e., the consistency of any fruit butter, like apple butter), about 20 minutes. Spoon it into a clean, airtight glass jar.  Let it cool then store in refrigerator.


OR just slather a couple tablespoons of pumpkin butter between 2 cookies and enjoy!!  The combo is a heavenly, soft, gooey, autumnal explosion in your mouth.

Because the raw honey acts as a natural preservative, this pumpkin butter will keep for months in the refrigerator. Let me know if yours last long enough to test that out. I know mine never does  🙂
