Pumpkin Butter in Toronto

watson_cee Nov 13, 2011 07:29 AM

Hello all,

Does anyone know where to find pumpkin butter in Toronto? A Google search yielded nada, and I called Whole Foods in Yorkville and they said they don't have it. I'm not much of a baker/cook, so I don't want to make it myself in case I mess it up. I just need it to bake some "easy" cookies for a charity bake sale, and was given this recipe based on the fact that it's suppose to be foolproof and a novice baker like myself can't screw up. But it calls for pumpkin butter!


Thanks in advance!

    I have been on a similar quest and trying to find something like this can be very challenging. I pretty much called everywhere.
    My efforts paid off and here is the info. This store carries Pumpkin butter.
    They said that they have it all year round.

      There is probably much better alternatives but if all else fails, Williams Sonoma always has their Pecan Pumpkin Butter this time of year. Pricy, yes.

        Thank you all for the suggestions! Muchly appreciated. Baking is so foreign to me that I forgot about all the stores you've suggested!

        im surprised WF doesnt have it. Its not that hard to find... most of the high end or specialty stores should carry it. Try McKewans, Pusateris , Summerhill or Sunvalley

          You can make it easily. http://easteuropeanfood.about.com/od/...

          I bet a pumpkin pie filling would be a good substitute, if you don't have time to make it.
