Honey Butter

Don't you dare buy that stuff in the tub at the grocery!  It's horribly overpriced and tastes just awful.  It takes less than 5 minutes and is MUCH better tasting to just make this yourself!

You'll need:
3 sticks of softened butter (REAL butter)
8 oz honey at room temperature (can warm for 5 - 10 seconds in the microwave if needed - make sure the top is open)

Cut the butter into pats and get the honey out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter while your bread bakes or you go about your morning rounds. 

Add the butter pats into a small mixing bowl, whip together with honey (adding as you go) on a medium speed mixer until completely blended.

If you get a consistency that is thinner than you like, you can add 1/2 cup powdered sugar and it will firm up for you. 

The hardest part of this is waiting until everything is nice and soft from being out on the counter for an hour or so!

Voila!  This is honey butter!
