So. Good. I paired this down to 8 servings, as I didn't want to make a whole bunch and not like it. But, it really was great. I didn't have pure maple syrup but I did have pure Butter Pecan syrup, which was a workable substitution. I ended up using this butter on the Nut and Grain pancakes from this site, which turned out alright. I don't know if I'd make it again, but it WAS good.

I thought this was just okay. The pumpkin pie spice was overpowering. Also there was not much of a maple flavor. If I were to make this again, I would use less spice and try increasing the amount of maple syrup or even add 1 teaspoon pure maple extract.

This is really good! I did half the recipe to try it out. I didn't think it had a really strong maple flavor though. But, the flavor was good anyway! It was like eating cinnamon raisin bread with butter and sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top. I put it in a one cup container with a twist top lid, and it fit perfect. It was a very handy container to store it in the fridge. I will definitely make a cup of this as is every fall!

I loved this! It is very sweet and flavorful. It is perfect for use on toast or a bagel.

Left out the pumpkin spice and used Eggo Buttery syrup. Turned out amazing, but unless it's spread on hot items, the texture is gritty due to the brown sugar. Anyway, the taste makes up for the grit. Used on cornbread, and will definately make again.

Amazing! I made it to put on sweet potato rolls I made from this site, but it was so good the family sat at the dinner table thinking "what else can we put this on" I made waffles for breakfast and we put it on them -YUMM, then I made corn bread- to die for with maple butter on it hot out of the oven! will be a staple in my house! Thanks for sharing!

Superb! I used some Vermont maple syrup my father in law brought down from VT. The pumpkin pie spice gave it the unique flavor. We have been eating it on 'bread machine bagels' from this site (which we like SO much!)...I also served to guests and they agreed it was delish! Thanks for the recipe!

I used a teaspoon of pumpkin spice, 1 table spoon to much. But great Maple butter.
