Happy Friday and happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians. Although I’m actually American of Scottish descent but we’ll leave that story for another time. This long weekend has me thinking about upcoming holidays, treats and gifts. I love making and giving consumable gifts, ‘cos really, who needs more stuff? And isn’t it always nice to try something new? Here’s a super simple recipe for a delicious spread:
Cinnamon Honey Butter
1/2 cup butter (at room temperature)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup icing sugar (or less)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Place all ingredients in a bowl and whip it. Whip it good (sorry, I couldn’t resist)! Spoon into containers – this filled 2 tiny canning jars with a bit left over. So good on toasted English muffins and pancakes…you might want to consider making a double batch! Like butter, this spreads much easier if it’s at room temperature but should be refrigerated for longer storage.
Label it and you’ve got yourself a lovely little hostess gift…maybe add a couple of fresh croissants or muffins? How’s that for a quick and easy sweet treat?
