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!

    I was just trying to decide what to do for the teacher for Christmas. It was between a tote or towel that I would embroider. Not Im for sure doing a hand towel and making some butter and homemade bread!!

    I like spanish christmas in

  48. Jessica posted on November 2, 2011 at 5:09 pm (#)

    In your photo, you’ve used ‘clover honey’ & ‘salted sweet cram butter’. Are they different from regular honey & butter? I’d love to make these because of the rave reviews!

    • TidyMom replied on November 2nd, 2011 at 8:05 pm

      Any pure honey and real butter is what you need.

  49. Kate posted on November 8, 2011 at 6:55 am (#)

    Love this! Just wanted to let you know that I’m including it in my post “Top 10 Gifts in Jars” today Feel free to stop by and grab a button or link for your page to show that you are featured! Thanks!

  50. Kathryn posted on November 28, 2011 at 3:16 pm (#)

    I just made a small batch of this butter… I wanted to test it before making jars as gifts and it is CRAZY delicious!! Heading out tomorrow to buy some lovely jars to make gifts for all the teachers at my sons school. Thank you for taking the time to post this amazing idea…. So simple, So tasty and (thankfully) So different from the run-of-the-mill edible treats everyone seems to give!
