Thanksgiving Trial #2

Dee from September the March made the suggestion of using Honey Butter with my Honey Cornbread Muffins.  Great Idea!

Last year I bought an acorn cookie cutter from Crate and Barrel because I thought it would be so cute to make acorn shaped butter pats.  I didn't get to do it last year, but I will this year!

I did some googling for honey butter recipes and I really like that Alton Brown's uses cinnamon and vanilla, too.  His recipe uses a whole pound of butter!!  Since I only need to do a trial run, I scaled the recipe down to 2 tbsp. butter, 3/4 tsp. honey, a pinch of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla.  Rather than busting out the handmixer, I whipped the ingredients by hand.  Make sure your butter is really soft before you whip it.

Plop the butter onto a sheet of parchment and flatten with another sheet on top.  Let it harden back up in the fridge.

After about an hour, you can cut out pats just like cookies.  I love the little flecks of cinnamon and it tastes so yummy.

When I make this for Thanksgiving,  I'll spread the butter out onto a rimmed cookie sheet and smooth with an offset spatula.
