Vanilla Honey Butter

Oh, hey. I’m Corrin. You weren’t expecting me, were you? This is my first guest post ever, and I’m super excited because I get to post on a blog that I’m a huge fan of on a topic that I can’t get enough of. Food!

I work in food marketing communications, which means that my clients are national food manufacturers, and I coordinate their brochures, advertising, packaging, and best of all…recipe development! We have a chef on staff who is fabulous at whipping up the best recipes that incorporate our client’s products, plus a food photographer and stylist that make sure we have the best pictures to make the recipes look as scrumptious as they taste.

The recipes that I love the most were developed for a Chicago company known for their vanilla extracts. Now, I don’t get paid enough to run around the internet plugging the company, but I do love their cookbook enough to share my favorite recipe, which just so happens to be the simplest:

Vanilla Honey Butter

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients using an electric mixer until creamy and smoother on muffins, bagels, toast, or just eat with a spoon (the most shameful, and my favorite, way to sample).

If you’d like a super special bottle of vanilla extract that was specially aged for the company’s 100 year anniversary, head on over to my blog and I will send a bottle to the first 12 people that leave a comment on any post using the keyword “vanilla.”

Corrin has a slew of blogs, her most popular being Oh, Hey, a mish-mash of pop culture, product reviews, current events, and daily life. She resides in Chicago with her paramedic husband and miniature wiener dog.

    This sounds delicious. I’ll have to try it soon. Vanilla is my favorite flavor especially if it’s vanilla bean.

    That is a great idea! I bought a ton of beans that I made extract and vanilla sugar with, but this is something I’ve got to try when my extract is…well..done extracting!
