I made an apple pumpkin butter and processed it as instructed for 10 minutes in a water bath. There are air bubbles that appeared after processing. The lids have sealed and there were no other problems. Should it still be safe to store and eat?

First, we do not have an approved apple and pumpkin butter recipe I am aware of. So, providing the acid level is safe, then the recipe will be safe to eat.
Here is the safe apple butter recipe: http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/can_02/apple_butter.html.
The pulp in some fruits will trap air bubbles. Only long processing times can remove them. The 10 minute time is safe and the air bubbles are okay.
