Apple Cinnamon Butter

In many parts of the country (unfortunately not in my neck of the woods) it's the beginning of the beautiful fall season.  Boy do I miss it - the cooler weather, the changing leaves - but just because it's still 100 degrees here in Arizona doesn't mean I can't enjoy the food that signifies autumn! 

I found this little gem of a recipe on Tasty Kitchen and loved it so much I just had to share.  I think it would be a great neighbor gift to go along with a fresh loaf of homemade bread!  A 4 oz. mason jar or small Ziploc container would do the trick.

from Nancy on Tasty Kitchen

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. applesauce
2 Tbsp. sugar
3 pinches ground nutmeg

Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Whip on high using the whisk attachment of your mixer (or you can beat with a hand-held mixer).  When done, it should be light and fluffy.

Serve soft right after making or put in a resealable container and store in the refrigerator.
