The Pumpkin Bread Mix, Pumpkin Butter, and Cinna-Cream Sprinkles are available only during the fall and winter holiday season (September - December). You'll find them under Gifts at my Watkins Online web site. The Pumpkin Butter tastes great on pumpkin bread, muffins, bread, toast, bagels, biscuits, or Watkins Good Tastings Bread. And here’s a recipe for cupcakes that uses Pumpkin Butter as an ingredient.
