This quick, lightly sweetened cinnamon butter makes an excellent topping for plain baked or mashed sweet potatoes or winter squash. It takes just a minute or two to make! Feel free to alter the amount of cinnamon and sugar to suit your taste. 

I like to serve this cinnamon butter with quick bread, scones, or muffins. The butter is pictured with this pineapple nut bread. It would be a nice spread for pancakes or waffles as well.

The recipe makes about 1/3 cup, and it's easily scaled up for a large dinner or brunch.


  • 4 tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Steps to Make It

1. In a small bowl combine the softened butter, cinnamon, and powdered sugar; blend thoroughly and chill until serving time.

2. Serve rounded teaspoonfuls on baked or plain mashed sweet potatoes, or serve it along with quick bread, muffins, scones, or pancakes.
