Nothing says fall like a jar of pumpkin butter in the house—except for maybe the leaves changing color. When we first discovered this addictively delicious autumnal spread, we put it on toast basically every morning. But who knew there were so many other ways to use it? From flavorful cocktails to granola, these recipes will blow your mind.

1. A Rum Cocktail

This autumnal cocktail uses pumpkin butter as a sweetener and flavor agent alongside anejo rum, dry sherry, lemon juice, simple syrup, and angostura bitters—and of course, a cinnamon stick and nutmeg for garnish.
