Homemade Gifts: Cinnamon Honey Butter


I found a fantastic recipe for a quick, easy and delicious gift on this fun blog. Which I found by way of her twin sister’s wonderful design blog. Quite a pair those two! Always sharing such incredible creativity and their love of faith and family. Be sure to pay them a visit…I know you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

Cinnamon Honey Butter

2 Sticks Softened Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Honey
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Using the whisk attachment in your mixer, blend all ingredients until it is smooth and has an even consistency. Occasionaly scrape down the sides of the mixer with a rubber spatula to ensure even mixing. Scoop all of it into a Ziploc bag and pipe it into the small quilted Ball jars. You don’t have to use the plastic bag but it helped me from getting it all over the place and seemed to make clean up a cinch.

I actually doubled the recipe and it made 9 jars. I highly recommend doubling it because it’s so tasty and everyone will love it. And it only took about 20 minutes from start to finish, easy peasy!

    Hey girl,
    Let me in on my secret when I have to fill things…use a canning funnel. When I make mulled cider and I want to ladle some into a mug, I put the funnel in the mug, then I can ladle without worry. If the mouth of the funnel fits in the jars, this might help with the filling. I use this method when I have to fill jars with powders or liquids. Try it, see if you like it.
    Cinnamon is my most favorite spice, going to make this for sure!

  39. This is the gift that made the season go ’round! I made it, too. Twice. Yours is packaged up so pretty!

  40. I made the honey butter last night and it is delicious! I’m sitting here with my Irish breakfast tea and an English muffin slathered in the honey butter. THANKS for the recipe.

  41. i still need a few gifts for the neighbors i think i’ll whip up a batch! thank you for sharing the links, i’ll be sure to checkout their blogs! merry christmas! susan

  42. The butter, is it salted or unsalted butter? This sounds so good and I really want to try it. We usually use country crock so I am going to have to go buy butter. I can’t wait to try this.

  43. How long does this last if keot in the refrigerator? Thanks!
