Honey Butter with a Touch of Cinnamon – More than just honey and butter, this heavenly recipe includes a few other secret ingredients that make it absolutely irresistible!
Have you ever had a family dinner where store-bought dinner rolls and margarine have been served as a side? In my humble opinion, the mixture of artificial ingredients, carbs, and fat are totally not worth it. I’ll skip the rolls, thank you very much. More room for pie!
But then there are homemade rolls… And honey butter…
I recently whipped up a batch of Honey Butter for my Honey Bear Dinner Rolls. The bread was fantastic, but the addition of my recipe for honey butter made it heavenly (and completely deserving of it’s own blog post – and all those carbs and fat!)
The secret to this honey butter is that it’s not just honey and butter. The addition of confectioner’s sugar gives it a creamier texture and holds the butter and honey together. Plus just a touch of vanilla and cinnamon adds a hidden warmth to the spread.
Really, this honey butter is pretty dangerous. You’ll keep wanting just a dollop more. Before you know it you’ll be three rolls in and saying, “I have no room for pie!”
- 1/2 lb (2 sticks) salted butter at room temperature
- 3 Tbsp honey

- 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
