  • 1 cup butter, room temperature

  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon cream of tartar

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Beat the 1 cup of butter in a large mixing bowl for 30 seconds. Add the 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup pumpkin to the bowl. Beat until the ingredients are combined.
