Cinnamon Honey Butter- Gifts in a Jar

Food gifts are always a favorite of mine.  These Cinnamon Honey Butter jars make a pretty presentation when you add a little bling to the jars, and pair with homemade bread,  pound cake, biscuit mix or even bagels!

I’ve made several batches already, and we wont mention how much my family has devoured!

Warning…… may want to double or triple the recipe because everyone is going to want some!
