Cinnamon Honey Butter

I’m in NYC today for a quick, one day blogging event, which I can’t wait to tell you guys all about. This weekend before I left, Kevin wanted to treat me to a special dinner. But since I still hadn’t packed yet, we stayed in… and he cooked! The last time he did that was on Valentine’s Day, three years ago, so I knew I was in for a rare treat. :)


Don’t you love it when restaurants bring you bread at the beginning of the meal? One of our favorite restaurants serves their bread with this incredible cinnamon-honey butter, and I’m in love with it. To give our dinner an authentic restaurant feel, Kev picked up these Pepperidge Farm stone baked artisan french rolls for our appetizer.


And I definitely wanted to give that cinnamon honey butter a try. I pulled out some of my favorite ingredients that I’d been saving for a special occasion. Roasted cinnamon, honey from our trip to Savannah, and this Tahitian vanilla extract, that I only wish I could say was from a trip to Tahiti.


How to Make Cinnamon Honey Butter

Scoop four tablespoons of softened butter into a bowl…


Drizzle with one tablespoon of honey…


And 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. The Tahitian vanilla extract is made for foods you don’t cook, and I loved the light, pure vanilla flavor. It was perfect for this butter!


Top it all with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon.


And stir to combine.


By the time I whipped up the butter, Kev’s french rolls were ready! I loved that we could make just two and save the rest for another time.


He set the table with our red dishes. You know. The color of luuuurvve.


I could not wait to crack into the french rolls! I loved the fresh, hot from the oven taste, and that crispy, crackly crust was just insane. I give them a thumbs up for sure.


And the butter. Oh my gosh, I cannot tell you how much we loved this butter! The flavor knocked my socks off. Cinnamon. Honey. Vanilla. Swoon.


It was perfect for these light, airy rolls, as the butter would melt and seep down into the little air pockets and give a burst of flavor with each bite.


What simple things do you do to make an ordinary meal feel more special?

I’ll be posting updates about NYC throughout the day, keep in touch with me on Twitter and Facebook! :)

    I made this for homemade rolls today and it was perfect. I have tried several recipes for this butter over the last several years but they were too sweet but not this. Matter of fact, our daughter’s boyfriend about finished it off and he went home with the recipe. Thank you for a great recipe.

    I noticed that your honey looked creamy – did you use a special type of honey? I just have the the plain old honey. Thanks.

    I made French toast this morning. This butter was super yummy. I already add cinnamon to my batter and this just made it so much better!!!!

    I made this butter for our rolls for Easter dinner! It was delicious! Have you ever been to a Texas Roadhouse restaurant? They have similar butter and it’s highly addictive! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Yum! Cinnamon honey butter is delicious! My favorite is pairing it with homemade wheat bread (fresh out of the breadmaker!). Thanks for the recipe – I will definitely be making that soon!

  7. Kristina L

    I often pass up delicious-sounding recipes because they seem too difficult and time-consuming. But this recipe looks both delicious AND doable. Thanks!

    I’ve made plain honey butter before but you’d better bet mama’s gonna whippin’ up a batch of this goodness! I told my friend “Hey Amanda’s in NYC, you know that means a yummy blog to follow!” We’re going to San Fran in a few weeks and you SF post was a great help in deciding where to go!

  11. Karen Peterson

    Wow, didn’t know that Pepperidge Farm made those type of rolls; look very delish. Am yet another admirer of those fabulous red plates and please add my name to the list of folks that want to know the details!

    The Sante Fe Cattle Company serves cinnamon butter with their fluffy rolls and we love it. Will have to try this the next time I make rolls. Hmmm, will have to try the powdered sugar trick! Glad you posted this.

  15. Kristin Murdock

    Looks so great, I have some of those rolls in the freezer so I’ll have to make this butter to accompany them asap. Hope you are having a grand time in New York — wish I could come and meet up with you for cupcakes! :) Can’t wait to hear about your trip.

  16. SheilaR

    This sounds yummy, thanks for sharing. Thinking that I might add this to the dinner table on Easter. I also want to add that I love your blog. I have really got some neat things from it. From recipes, to photography tips and lots of laughs about your dogs!

    I love the honey cinnamon butter they do at Santa Fe Steak House!! I have always wanted to recreate it at home but I have been a little afraid… because I would eat it all!! This looks fantastic!

  18. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    Mmmmm- love this idea!! We had boring old French bread w/ butter last night. Will have to whip up some of this w/ our leftovers :)

    You were in NYC without us???? Hope you had fun :)

  19. Jenny Flake

    Gorgeous! The butter in the bowl almost looks like ice cream which means I’d probably grab a spoon and eat the darn honey butter right out of the bowl! Lol! Looks great :) Have so much fun today!!

  20. Amanda

    I love this butter!!! They always serve it at one of our favorite restaurants in the area, now I can make it at home:) I might serve this with Easter dinner. Thanks for sharing!

    Going to the store today and will look for the rolls. They look great and love the idea you can use only what needed. Will try your butter too. Please bring me some vanilla next time you visit Tahiti !!!!
