About the Cinna-Honey Butter Recipe
The holidays are inevitably filled with tons of dinner parties — many of which include turkey/ham, mashed potatoes, and lots of bread — so we wanted to come up with a few unique spins on the classic recipes that would set our meals apart.
Grandma's rolls have always been a staple at holidays, and they were always served with an array of toppings such as apple butter, luxury jams, and, of course, butter. We figured we'd fill out the collection with some fresh, cinnamon-infused honey butter. Plus, we were able to use the leftovers to make these incredible Hemp Seed Pumpkin Truffles for a "healthy" dessert.
