Cinnamon Frosting Butter

Cinnamon Frosting Butter

Another day, another butter. OK…that just came out of nowehere but I think it might be new motto. Or a new website. Are there websites devoted to butter? Surely there are, but the world could always use another, right?! Check out my Pumpkin Pie Butter if you need convicing! On a serious(ish) note, this Cinnamon Frosting Butter will change your life and make everyone that you feed it to happy.

What is Cinnamon Frosting Butter?

Well, it’s butter. But it tastes like frosting because honestly, it is also basically frosting. This is something that has been passed down for generations in my family. It’s only three ingredients, it’s very easy to make, and it will last in the fridge for a couple of weeks (but honestly I’ve never tested that theory because in this house, it would never last two weeks before we ate it all).

This is definitely NOT one of my healthy recipes. So if you’re here for the 21 Day Fix or Weight Watchers, I’m sorry. You can go ahead and skip this one (or, save it for a special occasion).

And speaking of special occasions, that’s really the only time we ever make this. It’s definitely a holiday treat.
