Cinnamon Butter

A Texas Roadhouse butter recipe that is super delicious! I only make it to go with cornbread, although we occasionally make it to have on top of the white fluffy rolls Anna makes…


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
Beat all ingredients together and store in fridge.


Auntie Lei’s Caramel Apple Dip

This caramel dip is one of the easiest, tastiest fall recipes I have. It’s super impressive tasting and there are never leftovers. It is best eaten with apples, pretzels, nuts, graham crackers, cardboard, fingers (or if you’re more civilized, a spoon). So, I would advise doubling this. Or tripling it…

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
apples (I like tart apples)

Place butter and brown sugar in microwave dish.  Cook on high for 2-3 minutes.
Beat cream cheese and blend until smooth. Add butter and brown sugar mixture and combine till smooth.
Add in vanilla.
