Forget pumpkin spice... we’re talking apple spice, now! (Just kidding, we’ll always love you, pumpkin spice.) This is our favorite Spiced Apple Butter recipe, and it goes great on biscuits or croissants! It also makes for a perfect hostess gift—just pour it into a small mason jar, add a ribbon, and you’re all set!
