Butter Just Got Better

In my pantry today:

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/3 c light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp orange extract

Have you happened to have tried the newly offered sweet potato from Wendy’s®? It has had me fall in love with sweet potatoes again — partly for their creamy well-baked texture, but largely-er partly to the spread that accompanies them. I spent a good deal of time thinking about making a copycat version — to get it wrong would be an anti-climactic foray into buttertown, but to get it right would be to be able to move away from the mystery spread base from the fast food window. The experiment created a version much like the one at Wendy’s®, but with straight-up from the cow butter. Cream together all of the above, adjusting each ingredient to your taste if warranted, and tell me I’m wrong. 5 spoons, yo!
