Gingerbread Butter

When I made homemade egg bagels I wanted to make some special flavored cream cheeses. Well, the homemade bagels are all gone, but this Gingerbread Butter would have been fabulous on them. For that matter, Gingerbread Butter would be great on any bread like bagels, biscuits, French bread, or even French toast, pancakes or waffles. Try topping a baked sweet potato with this festive butter. Or, make a hot buttered rum – gingerbread style! Mmm, so many things you could do with this.

serve this sweet butter with biscuits, bagels, or fresh bread of any kind

Maybe I’ll serve it at my Christmas brunch. Oh, maybe French toast with Gingerbread Butter and Butter Pecan Syrup. Or is that gilding the lily?

This butter kind of reminds me of the apple butter at Lucille’s BBQ; but this is better because you made it yourself. And, it’s so festive.

It’s really easy to make in the food processor. I used my mini 2-cup processor. If you don’t have a food processor you could still make this, but it’ll be a little chunkier because the pecans won’t be chopped as finely. Just use a sturdy fork to thoroughly mix all the ingredients, then mix in your finely chopped pecans.

    Keep it in a tightly closed jar in the fridge or freeze it. I would think it would be good for up to 6 months in the fridge and probably 1 year in the freezer. Though, you should check the expiration date on the butter you use to be sure. If the butter or the nuts expire they’ll give an “off” odor that will indicate they have gone bad.
