Brown Sugar Butter

Hey, nerds. Just wanted to give y'all a follow-up on my last couple of posts. I did try making some brown sugar cinnamon butter. Ate it in my Cream of Wheat this morning. Delicious! Also great on toast.

This was a little different kind of process than the other butters. I used a double-boiler set up (really just my metal mixing bowl on top of a saucepan) to melt the brown sugar down. This breaks down the crystals so it ain't so grainy. I added some cinnamon, melted the butter and then poured it into this perfect little Pyrex dish I'm so fond of.

Once it sits in the fridge for a while, it hardens back up to butter consistency.
  • hot cereals, of course: Cream of Wheat, oatmeal
  • meats?? ham - a la Honey Baked Ham
  • many different kinds of desserts - cinnamon apple pie, for instance ... melted sugar butter... mmmmm

Yum! I think this concoction would be great with just about anything for breakfast. I will be trying this some weekend morning!
