Cinnamon Butter

A few weeks ago I made a cilantro butter for some fresh corn that I had bought at the Farmers Market. Our granddaughter Kealee heard me say that I had made butter. Her little brain started turning and thinking of butter flavors. She then asked me if I would teach her to make butter. She explained how difficult it was to keep the sugar and cinnamon on her toast and that we needed to make Cinnamon Butter. Smart kid!

We made a butter spread and a log of butter. Kealee wanted her butter to spread easy so she chose to make spread. As did Cohen. Joy wanted a stick or log butter.

We used a small food processor, heavy whipping cream, raw sugar and cinnamon.

Cinnamon Butter

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 TBS raw sugar

1/8 tsp cinnamon

Put whipping cream in food processor. Whip for 2-3 minutes. The whipping cream should look like cream by this point. Add cinnamon and sugar. Whip another few minutes. If you want spread to be hard like a stick of butter whip longer. When the mixture separates the water from the fat remove the butter from the processor and shape into a log. Squeezing  the remaining water out. Wrap in plastic wrap and refridgerate.

If you want your butter to be spread, whip less and put it in a tupperware container. Then refridgerate.

They ate their butter on toast for breakfast the next day and loved it!!!

This is a great easy thing to do with kids and does not take very long to do. We did it within an hour including clean up.

Happy cooking!
