This is a delicious, cinnamony-sweet butter spread for toast, scones, muffins, popovers…whatever!  You may want to add jars of this yummy treat to your Holiday gift baskets.

I like to use my Red Wing pottery beater jar to make this spread. This little jar is also nice for making salad dressings, beating eggs, and even for making homemade whipped cream.


~Sugar & Spice Honey Butter~

2 sticks real butter, softened to room temp.

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup clover honey

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

Whisk all ingredients until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, scrape into 5 small quilted Ball jars.

    Are you allergic to honey? Agave nectar is an awesome substitute 😉

    Yup, I’m allergic to everything. I always say if it breathes or grows, I’m allergic to it. LOL Animal hairs/oils/by products (milk & honey) are the worst along with plants/flowers, and then many other foods. Thankfully some of my reactions aren’t as bad as others, so I can tolerate some of my allergens. It makes life difficult for sure, but not impossible! What is Agave nectar?

      OOH! Should be interesting. Can’t wait to hear your review. 🙂

      My husband is diabetic and I have just started to use Agave rather than Splenda because it is low-glycemic AND natural. I too am interested to see how this turns out!!!

    I’m assuming with the butter that this has to be kept refridgerated?
