Compound Butters

Did you ever want a little something extra to make you feel special? I got these from a friend and have used them ever since.
Cinnamon Honey Butter
1/2 cup softened salted butter
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients and whip with mixer until light and fluffy. Put it in a decorative dish and serve at room temperature.This is good on a fruit loaf, English muffins, warm biscuits or just plain toast if that's what you want.
Lemon Pepper Butter
1/2 cup softened salted butter
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients and place on plastic wrap. Form into a roll and twist the ends of the plastic wrap to close it. Refrigerate. Cut in 1/4 inch slices and top a hot grilled steak, just before serving.

These compound butters make a nice gift and remember, the Holidays are just around the corner and what better way to say Happy Holidays to your neighbor or friend?
Till next time..........
