Ingredients needed for copycat Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter
Butter – Use high quality, unsalted sweet cream butter. I prefer using unsalted because you can control the sodium. You can substitute with salted if you prefer.
Cinnamon – Ground cinnamon adds lots of flavor to this spread. Try using fresh, high quality ground cinnamon for the best taste.
Powdered Sugar – Adds a touch of sweetness to the butter. If you want to cut back on calories, feel free to reduce the amount or omit.
Honey – Another layer of sweetness.
Vanilla Extract – Offers a warm, rich flavor to the butter.
Salt – Helps to balance the sweetness.

- Ingredients: Place softened butter, honey, powdered sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a large bowl.
- Mix: Use an electric mixer to whip the butter and combine ingredients.
- Serve: Serve immediately or store in airtight container.
- Make sure to allow enough time for the butter to soften.
- This recipe makes a cup of butter. Feel free to cut the recipe in half if you don’t want that much. It does keep well and for about a month in the refrigerator so I like to make a larger serving at one time.
- The longer the mixture sits together, the more the flavors will develop.
How to store cinnamon honey butter
Store: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one month. *** This butter can be left out at room temperature for about a day. So if you are serving it at a party or the holidays, it’s ok to be out on the table, just be sure to put it back in the refrigerator once you are finished.
Freeze: I would recommend not freezing.
