Spiced Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Butter

During the cooler weather months, we eat a good deal of baked sweet potatoes and roasted squash in our house. This Spiced Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Butter is one of our favorite toppings for both. It is so quick to throw together and uses ingredients that we all tend to keep on hand.

French toast, waffles and pancakes are, also, great canvases for this easy-to-prepare spread.


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat ingredients with an electric mixture on high until smooth and creamy. (If butter is soft enough, blending of ingredients is manageable with only a fork, if needed.)
Use immediately or store in refrigerator.


  1. Oh my, this sounds sooo good. I love flavored butters, so I do believe this will be on the Thanksgiving table.

    1. Hope you enjoy it. It is SO fantastic! Happy Thanksgiving
