This honey butter is so easy to whip together! A final drizzle of honey and sprinkle of salt make it utterly irresistible. Recipe yields about 3/4 cup—double it for a crowd.
One stick of unsalted butter (4 ounces or 8 tablespoons), softened
3 tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
For garnish: Drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt or kosher salt
In a 2-cup liquid measuring cup (or other small, shatter-proof mixing bowl with tall sides), combine the softened butter, honey, cinnamon and salt.
Using a hand mixer, whip the ingredients together until the butter is light and fluffy.
Transfer the mixture to a small serving bowl. Lightly drizzle honey on top, followed by a little sprinkle of flaky salt or kosher salt.
Serve promptly, or refrigerate for later (let the mixture come back to room temperature before serving). Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 5 days.
Change it up: The cinnamon is technically optional but quite nice. You might enjoy other warming spices, like pumpkin spice blend, a dash of nutmeg or even some freshly ground black pepper. Maple syrup will work in place of the honey.
