adapted slightly from Gimme Some Oven
1 cup water
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk water, sugars, pumpkin puree and spices in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent burning on the bottom. Lower the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat, wait about 5-10 minutes, then stire in vanilla extract. Store in an air-tight container for up to 10 days. Use in your coffee, on oatmeal, drizzled into Greek yogurt…pretty much anywhere you want a little pumpkin spice in our life!
You can also try it in your oatmeal or stirred into Greek Yogurt!
