Ok, so I was gone for a while:) A long while. I am just OVERLOADED with awesome recipes to share! Including this gem. I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. She introduced it to us a few years ago at Christmas and we’ve all been dreaming about it ever since. I’ve tried a lot of different kinds of honey butter, but his one is BY FAR the best. It’s so creamy and delicious. The best part is that it stays soft in the fridge. There’s nothing worse than trying to spread hard butter on a warm roll.
This year for Christmas I bottled up some homemade strawberry jam (here) and honey butter with homemade rolls (here) for all of my neighbors and friends. I think it must be a new tradition! Not to mention less work than making hundreds of treats that people are already getting. It’s nice to get something different. Impress your neighbors with this amazing recipe.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup honey
1 cup sugar
1 pound (4 sticks) salted sweet cream butter
1 tsp vanilla
Bring whipping cream, honey and sugar to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Put cold butter in a blender. Pour boiling mixture and vanilla over butter and blend until smooth. Pour into containers and refrigerate overnight before eating. Store in the fridge.
