Pumpkin Apple Pie

I admit that my house smells like a Yankee Candle store in the Autumn. I'm obsessed with their Apple Pumpkin scent, which is the perfect mix of fresh tart apple, spices and pumpkin pie. I literally want to eat this candle.

Gratefully the more edible answer arrived via email. Bed Bath and Beyond sends out promotional emails about every 5 to 8 minutes, and explicably they included the recipe below for Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie! Yay! I can finally conquer my candle-eating fixation. The only substitution I would make is switching out the half-n-half for a 12-oz can of evaporated milk (because that's how you make a classic pumpkin pie), and even though apple butter is quite rich, I would add a touch more and eliminate the white sugar altogether (white sugar just adds sweetness without any depth).
