Cranberry Cinnamon Honey Butter

I already teased you with pictures of this glorious butter, so I think I’ve made you wait long enough. I love making compound butters of all sorts–the possibilities are endless! My vanilla bean butter remains one of my favorites, so much vanilla goodness packed into it! Or try pumpkin-honey butter! Perfect for fall.

This butter is perfect on any bread, but on toasted bread? Oh my. It melts down and the cranberries almost turn into a jelly-jam type substance.

It. Is. So. Good.

Also, I’d highly recommend spreading it on the bread from last week. The flavors are just perfect for each other.

Almost as if they were made for each other.

Oh wait, they were.

Cranberry Cinnamon Honey Butter

Ingredients

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients together in food processor until well incorporated. Scrape down sides as needed (I needed to do this often, even in my small food processor).
  2. Best served at room temperature, but store in refrigerator when not using.
  3. Try it with this cranberry-walnut oat bread!

Verdict: Dangerous stuff! I could eat it by the spoonful.
Husband’s take: He’s not a huge fan of dried cranberries, but he liked the butter and ate it with the bread.
Changes I would make: None!
Difficulty: Easy!

Oh…how I wish that was sitting in front of me right now.

Such lovely flavours, I can definitely imagine enjoying this on some fresh bread & I love the idea of spreading it on toast so it gets all melty!

This is DELICIOUS Rachel! I just made it. Super easy and very yummy. I’m serving it with homemade beer bread for Thanksgiving. I didn’t think it made a large enough batch, so I ended up using the same ingredients with mascarpone cheese instead of butter… so now I have 2 different yummy options. Thanks for the recipe! :) :) Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh YUM! I’m so glad you like it and the mascarpone cheese version sounds so fantastic! Happy Thanksgiving, Rachael!
