My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Orange Honey Butter


Orange Honey Butter

Do you remember how I shared my love of homemade bread here?  The only thing that trumps it is homemade bread WITH Orange Honey Butter!  Warm bread slathered in this butter is life changing.  Dramatic?  Of course, but it's true.
Years ago I had tasted a sample at a new gourmet grocery store that had just opened.  I was hooked instantly, but I couldn't justify paying $7 lb for it!  That's when I went home and made some of my very own!
It's something that's great on homemade bread, pancakes waffles and French toast!  It keeps in the fridge for up to a month.

A few years ago I made a couple of batches and put it into smaller mason jars.  I tied a cute little ribbon around it and gave it as Christmas gifts to neighbors.  If you're really feeling nice, bake some fresh bread to go along with it! 
Orange Honey Butter

  1. Yummy! This sound delicious! Something a little different to add to my toast in the mornings. Thanks for sharing! Pinning!

  2. I love honey and Orange EVERYTHING! May I make a small correction? 2 Sticks of butter is 8 oz. , which is 1/2 lb. It takes 4 sticks of butter at 4 oz. each to equal 1 lb.. If by chance your 2 sticks actually weigh 8 oz. each, it might help your reader to understand that yours is not the tradional packaging (of 4 x 4oz=16) I means this to be helpful :-)
    ... and I was happy to find your post!!

    1. Thank you for that correction! Even though I read it over and over, I still miss things sometimes!
