The Cinnamon Raisin Bread was made in the bread machine, and the Pumpkin Butter simmered all day in the slow cooker, while the Apple Butter was cooking on the stove, making this basket super easy also. If you don’t have a bread machine, never fear, just pick up a loaf of bread at your local bakery.

Apple Butter is my absolute favorite spread for bread, toast and of course, biscuits. We used our recipe for Stovetop Apple Butter, and in less than an hour we had rich and delicious apple butter ready for the jars.
