Whipped Specialty Butters

October 11, 2012

Sweet flavored butters three ways! Cinnamon Honey Butter, Raspberry Butter and Vanilla Bean Honey Butter. The perfect compliment to homemade rolls or toast.

What is one out of the ordinary thing you should add as a new highlight to the Thanksgiving feast this year? Something that probably wouldn’t have come to mind, whipped specialty butters to go along with those fresh out of the oven, homemade rolls.

These butters are amazing! I was at my mother-in-laws a few days ago and she had fresh bread and some whipped cinnamon honey butter she’d bought at the store. I knew it would be a breeze to recreate after reading the ingredients list on the packaging label, so I came home and made it. In my opinion the homemade version may just be a bit better because it’s freshly made, but other than that they taste exactly the same.

I also decided to create a few other versions as well because why stop at just one flavor? There are many more I wanted to make but didn’t have the time. Here’s a few I had in mind: orange honey butter with orange extract and fresh orange zest, salted caramel butter with caramel sauce (rather than honey) and coarse sea salt, and lavender honey butter with dried lavender, because honey and lavender just go together.

Really there are so many different flavors you could make, but if there’s one you must try this Fall it’s the Cinnamon Honey Butter. It makes an ordinary roll taste similar to a cinnamon roll.

Note that pictured is only 1/4 of each recipe just because I didn’t want to use 3 cups of butter at once, there’s no way my family of 4 could eat that much unless were were to serve it scooped over the top of ice cream cones. If it weren’t so fattening I probably would like that =).

If you are looking for a delicious dinner rolls recipe, I’d recommend trying this one. Enjoy!
