Perfect proportions; I added 3/4 tsp salt and it was perfect. I think my salted butter lacked the proper amount of salt to balance it out. Once again Alton brings on a great family recipe. Thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I thought this recipe might go well with corn bread, but actually didn't care for it much. First, the recipe doesn't specify whether to use salted or unsalted butter, which I imagine would make a quite a difference in the final product. Secondly, if you start whipping chunks of butter with your stand mixer's whip attachment (as the recipe instructs) you will end up with a giant ball of butter trapped inside the whisk. It's a huge mess. Third, I didn't really like the addition of cinnamon and vanilla; it didn't significantly improve the flavor, imparted a brownish hue to the butter, and it made it seem more like frosting. Finally, I was hoping for a stronger honey flavor. I doubled the amount of honey, but the sweetness was still not what I was hoping for. If you're like me and enjoy drenching your cornbread in honey, you may also find this to be the case. Next time I will simply beat honey into butter to taste with my hand mixer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
just what I was looking for to perk up some wheat rolls! I cut down the proportions as I didn't need a whole pound of it for just 3 of us. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is worth making! I did like others and used 1 lb butter, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup honey, and the cinnamon and it was awesome! Thanks Alton!! I would have never thought to put the cinnamon in!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Oh my word! This is to die for! We had eaten at Texas Roadhouse (steak house, and this tastes JUST LIKE theirs! Fabulous!!! I did add 1/2 cup honey instead of 1/4 cup.....just my preference for sweetness on my bread. (I also saw Paula D has that much honey in her recipe. Yummo. Good job! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love Alton Brown's Honey Butter recipe! It's perfect! I lost my copy of the recipe and I'm so glad I could come here to get it. I am making more today! item not reviewed by moderator and published
YUMMMMMMMM. Very easy to prepare. I used a little more honey than the recipe called for, and it was great on corn muffins. Also, note that it makes *a lot* of honey butter because you are whipping so much air into it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
