Recipe: Cinnamon Honey Butter

Recipes from The Kitchn

This simple-but-genius butter was one of the most talked-about components of my wedding meal. When I asked our caterer for the recipe, she said they didn't have one — it's that easy. So I came up with my own version of the butter that turns even a humble dinner roll into an irresistible piece of cinnamon toast.

Our caterer was right; this butter is dead simple to make. Just cream butter with a little honey, cinnamon and salt to make a spread that tastes as good alone as it does with a bit of jam. Beyond toast, try spreading it on cornbread, biscuits, pancakes, or even a warm flour tortilla.

In a mixer or by hand, cream the butter with the salt, cinnamon and honey until thoroughly mixed. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. Spread on everything.
