Maple Cinnamon Butter

Compound butters are mixtures of butter and supplementary ingredients. Primarily, they are used to enhance flavor in various dishes, in a fashion similar to a sauce.
Compound butters can be made at home or purchased commercially. A compound butter can be made by whipping additional elements, such as herbs, (Tarragon & Honey) spices or aromatic liquids, into butter. The butter is then reformed, usually in plastic wrap or parchment paper, and chilled until it is firm enough to be sliced. These butters can be melted on top of meats and vegetables, used as a spread or used to finish various sauces and desserts. This one is great for breakfast!

  • 1 stick of butter at room temperature
  • 3 Tbsp. Real maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp.  Good quality cinnamon

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined.  If a processor is not available you can mash with a fork and stir to combine.

After removing, you can:
  1. Spoon onto parchment paper or plastic wrap. 
  2. Roll into a log, using the edge of a baking sheet to form a tight log. 
  3. Chill for 2 hours before serving.
  1. Place plastic wrap in a small dish (whatever you use the butter will take the form of), overlapping the sides.  
  2. Push down until the wrap forms to the sides of the dish.
  3. Place the butter in the dish and pack it in tightly.  Pull wrap up over the dish and cover tightly.
  4. Chill for 2 hours before serving. 
  5. Before serving, uncover dish and invert, peeling away wrap.
  6. Drizzle with more syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon.
