This cinnamon butter recipe takes barely 5 minutes to mix up. I recommend making a double batch. As the butter sits in the refrigerator, the flavors will blend together nicely. And if you have kids like I do? This isn’t going to last long. So yeah…make a bunch.
Notes on Making Cinnamon Butter:
I used salted butter because that is what I keep on hand. If you use unsalted butter, you may want to add a pinch of salt. Oh…and it goes without saying, use 100% real butter!
These ingredient amounts are just a suggestion. If you like a little more cinnamon or vanilla flavor, add more if you’d like.
Our favorite cinnamon? Saigon Cinnamon. I buy it in bulk and find it really makes my baked goods taste just a little bit better.
If you’d like, you can use honey instead of powdered sugar, or even a mixture of the two. Sweeten the butter with your favorite sweetener!

Hi, looks like just the recipe I need. Just one question: how long can it be stored in the fridge and can it be frozen? Thank you, Maryann
Love this recipe, easy and very good.
What is on your butter knife? “…The Peanut… Butter”
It seems thicker than store bought, how can I make it smoother.
OMG! This was so easy, and it turned out so good. I’ve been paying $5 for an 8oz container of this stuff, and now I’m wondering why when it’s so easy to make! Thank you!!
Hey I just made it and put it in the fridge. However when I took it out and was kinda frozen instead of a creamy consistency. Is it supposed to be like this or am I supposed to do something else.
This was so yummy!!
