{ Cinnamon Sugar Butter. Oh. Yes. }

 I've been friends with Michelle for 11 years.

But, I've never met her. We've shared so much over the years in the way of milestones, new babies, photos, laughs, joys, Christmas Cards, trials, tears, first days of kindergarten, first days of high school, scrapbook pages and so, so much  more.

Michelle lives in California, and I in Ohio. I guess by way of the internet, that's not really that far, considering one of my closest friends, Lauren, lives in Auckland, New Zealand.

California feels like forever away though.

However, much as we'd like to sit at the kitchen table and share coffee and toast with cinnamon sugar butter, we are thankful that the internet brought us together.

Yesterday, she posted about some store bought cinnamon butter, saying how she loved it.

Well, as a good friend, I couldn't let her do this.

Make your own. Really. It's cheap, it's easy, and it's decadent.

 Toast, elevated. For real.

Use it for toast, of course, bagels, dinner rolls, muffins, pancakes, homemade breads, or even sweet potatoes.

Just mix it up and try not to lick the knife.



If you can accomplish this, I give you much respect.

I do not have such willpower.

This is excellent on the holiday table. Be sure to make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas breakfast.
You won't be sorry.

And Michelle, you're welcome :)

Cinnamon Sugar Butter

1 stick of softened butter (yes, only butter will do)
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
a splash of vanilla

Toss into mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy (3-4 minutes).

That's it!
