Cinnamon Honey Butter Recipe

These simple ingredients combine to create magic. How about some fresh baked bread straight out of the oven slathered with a little bit of Cinnamon Honey Butter … oh my goodness.

Three Compound Butter Recipes

How to make Compound Butter 3 recipes for Compound Butter

To make up for my lack of bakery magic, I did decide to spend time on a few homemade touches that could be made ahead, one of which was compound butter.
