Has anyone made apple butter and pumpkin pie?

Was looking at recipes and thought this was interesting. Has anyone made anything like this before? Thanks!

  1. Never made anything like this, but I bookmarked it! It looks good!

    1. If you enjoy a warm spiced pumpkin pie, you'll enjoy this version. The apple butter intensifies the spices and adds a bit more sweetness. I have not made this recipe but I have made both a pumpkin and sweet potato pie that has an apple butter glaze, which entailed baking the pie and straight out of the oven adding a layer of apple butter topping that seeps into the pie filling as it cools.

        that sounds really good. Did it make it sweeter? I find most pumpkin pies too sweet but love the apple idea.

          I don't use alot of sugar in my pies, I tend to enjoy the spice profile more so the apple butter isn't over the top...but it's also just a thin layer. If a guest wanted a sweeter slice they could add a dollop of apple butter on their individual plate.

          As apple butters go...commerical or homemade...some are savory recipes and some are sweet.

            Yeah... the apple butter I buy is pretty darn sweet. I made a sandwich with cheddar once and could barely eat it (and I like cheddar with jam). OP, I guess it depends on the apple butter and on the amount of sugar in the recipe vs. a regular pumpkin pie recipe - I'd do a little mental math after tasting your apple butter.
