Whipped Specialty Butters


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!

  • sally @ sallys baking addiction: Jaclyn, these butters are CALLING out to me! Especially since I haven’t been feeling well this week, I’ve been eating a lot of plain bread with butter or peanut butter. I honestly do NOT think I could choose which I’d love more! Maybe the cinnamon? OR the raspberry!! Oh goodness, the vanilla honey too. Incredible. These are amazing Jaclyn, you are so creative :) October 12, 2012 at 3:59am Reply

  • Melanie: I made the cinammon-honey butter, and it was WAY too sweet. I added a whole extra cup of butter, and then the ratio was good. Are you sure you meant only 1 cup of butter? I can’t imagine eating it that sweet – couldn’t even taste the butter! November 22, 2013 at 6:54pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes the ratios listed are what I prefer, everyone just has a different sweet tooth I guess :). November 24, 2013 at 2:10pm Reply

  • Samantha: I made the cinnnamon honey butter tonight for our Thanksgiving feast on Thurs. Hoping it will keep well, I couldn’t think of a reason it wouldn’t. I used 3 sticks of butter and left out the powdered sugar, it seemed sweet enough with the honey. Tastes great! November 26, 2013 at 11:53pm Reply

  • Kristena: I was wondering how long these last? Thank you for the wonderful recipes- I recently came into a bread making machine and fully intend to make tons of fresh bread and jams/butters to go with it :) March 11, 2014 at 10:30am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I think they are good for a few weeks, mine never last that long so I can’t say for sure :). I hope you love them! March 11, 2014 at 10:39am Reply
