Turn ordinary into spectacular with Cinnamon Pear Butter. Think of it as a dessert butter that brightens any piece of toast, scone, or mound of pancakes. The ripe pear gives a natural sweetness that’ll make you smile.
A bran muffin is ok, but add some Cinnamon Pear Butter and wow, you’ve elevated it to a whole new level.
It’s a quick and easy butter to make and throw in the refrigerator, or freeze for another day.
Making Cinnamon Pear Butter
Ok, this is pretty easy. Ready?
Mix all the ingredients together, and mix with an immersion blender.
Well, there’s a little more to it, but not much.
First, you don’t need an immersion blender, you can use a food processor or blender, but that seems like a lot to clean up, so I use the immersion blender.
Or, dice the pear super fine and mash the pieces with the back of a spoon in a bowl.
Next, make sure the butter is softened before you start.
The pear; it should be ripe and small. If it’s big, use maybe 1/2 or 3/4 of it and eat the rest to keep your energy up.
This butter won’t last more than a few days with that fresh pear in it.
If you don’t think you’ll use it all within those few days, you could either freeze some, or share with others.
It makes a really nice gift, just add a ribbon or bow on top of a small jar. Yay!
Lastly, refrigerate it for at least 2 hours for optimal scrumptiousness.
You can serve it right away, but everything’s better after a little fridge magic.
What is Cinnamon Pear Butter good on?
Answer: anything you normally use butter on.
It adds so much flavor, that if you use it on waffles or pancakes, you may not need syrup.
Bagels, scones, muffins, or a freshly toasted piece of sourdough. So good.
Add a dollop on top of your oatmeal. Bread rolls…YUM!
If you’re looking for something even easier (as if!), check out my Apple Spice Butter that only needs 4 ingredients.
Looking for a great gift idea?
With technology today, we lose a lot of the personalization in gifts. My Collected Recipes gives you the chance to put in a little time and effort to really customize a recipe book for someone in a unique way.
The idea came about when I was telling my dear friend about finding my mom’s scribbled notes in her old recipe books. Having lost my mom in 2010, finding her handwriting is more like discovering a lost treasure. In this day of technology, looking at her handwriting means more to me than anything.
Luckily my friend owns Happy Birds Publishing. I make no money from any sales of the book, I only helped where I could. Together we corroborated how to make the book unique and personal, as well as functional. Dedicate the book to someone on the “Belongs to” page, and check out the helpful page of measurements and conversions. There are also Index pages you fill out each time you add another recipe to the book. Now the recipe pages; each page is dedicated to one recipe. There’s a large space for notes (that my mom would have loved), and a line for who gave you the recipe and when. Now your handwriting will be forever in their book as part of their gift, and years from now, those little details will tell a story.
We had a great time putting this book together for all those who appreciate a sentimental and personal gift. Click here for your choice of a soft cover or hard cover. So, consider doing that for someone you love. Give them the gift of your handwriting, a favorite recipe, and this lovely book they can fill with all their favorite recipes over time.
