Who doesn’t love a great pumpkin dessert? I made these the night before a little dinner party I was having, and wanted to make something that no one would guess is AIP. I decided on organic apple butter as a secret sweetening ingredient for my pumpkin parfaits. I decided on Apple Butter because it was utterly fall-like in its flavor, is easy to make yourself (apples, cinnamon and a crockpot!) and adds a dimension that another sugar like maple syrup or honey couldn’t. Apple butter has a great burst of tart that pairs well with the cinnamon and ginger in the pumpkin mixture. An unexpected surprise that really enhances the flavor of the whole dessert. This dish is just layer upon layer of fall flavors!
