Spiced Pecan Honey Butter




To go on the waffles I made the other night for dinner, I thought it might be fun to have a flavored butter.

You know, you can buy that in the store -- but I never do.

When I thought about the Fallish waffles, I thought Fallish butter.

Can there be such a thing?

In my world, there's room for most anything I want.

But only when I'm the only one in my world.

Which, by the way, doesn't happen real often!

But I basically took the same spices from the waffles and added to it for the butter.

I didn't think I could go wrong.

And if I did go wrong, it was only for me . . .and the Mr. and the two cherubs.

Who of us would complain?

At least I cooked, right?

So, here it is!

Spiced Pecan Honey Butter

½ cup butter, softened
a good squeeze of honey
1 to 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 to 2 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup chopped pecans

In a small mixing bowl, add the butter and all of the ingredients.  Using a hand mixer, blend until all of the ingredients are well incorporated.

Taste.  Make any adjustments for taste or consistency.

Mix again, if necessary.

Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve, if you like your butter firm.

Leave it out if you like your butter soft.

Either way, just enjoy!
