Spiced Maple Butter

Now here is a simple recipe for some whipped maple butter.  I got inspiration from a few different things:  whipped honey butter and cinnamon sugar butter.  I added a twist by using 100% pure maple syrup with a pinch of cinnamon and spice.  This is absolutely delicious and was a huge hit when I mashed it into your traditional baked sweet potato.  Make a big batch and store it in the refrigerator for a little something unexpected. 

Delicious homemade whipped butter with a hint of spice

1 stick butter
3-4tbs pure maple syrup
1/4tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp red pepper flakes
sprinkle sea salt

1. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients.  Whisk until blended.  Place bowl in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, or until butter becomes solid but not cold. (Alternatively, you could just use room temperature butter and skip the first 2 steps.)
3. Using an electric mixer, beat butter mixture until creamed together and the butter becomes light and fluffy.  Serve.
