I Heart Honey Butter!

This is a very simple recipe and a quick post because I had an exhausting weekend and I'm tired. This is something I made for Mother's Day brunch that I served with the biscuits I shared with you all last week. Enjoy!

Mr. H is out of town til Wednesday so I'm a lonely girl :-( Maybe you'll get another recipe tomorrow...

Cinnamon Honey Butter Hearts
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temp.
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

In a medium bowl, whip your butter with an electric mixer on medium speed til lighter in consistency and color-about 2-3 minutes. Add your brown sugar, honey, cinnamon and salt. Whip to combine.

Serve at room temperature for easy spreading.

NOTE: I had heart shaped silicone molds that I bought a year ago from the Target $1 aisle that were barely used. After the butter was prepared, I placed the butter in the molds and froze them. Once hardened, I plopped them out onto a plate and garnished with more honey and a pinch of cinnamon for color. I refrigerated them overnight and set them on the dining table an hour before the guests arrived do the butter was soft and spreadable. It was a hit and everyone thought it was store bought!

This recipe is easily doubled or tripled.

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
