Anyone who has ever been to Texas Roadhouse knows just how incredibly their cinnamon butter is. The good news? You can make a copycat version at home! It's super easy to make homemade cinnamon butter.

You only need a handful of ingredients including cinnamon, honey, butter, and powdered sugar, which you probably already have on hand. Cinnamon butter has a rich cinnamon flavor, with a subtle note of honey, and the perfect amount of sweetness.

It tastes fantastic when spread over dinner rolls, toast, biscuits, scones, buns – or pretty much anything! It's so good you might even be tempted to eat it with a spoon.

How to Make Cinnamon Butter

It takes just five minutes to whip up a batch of homemade cinnamon butter. Simply put the ingredients in a bowl, beat them to combine, and you're ready to go! Don't forget to give your cinnamon butter a taste to make sure it has the right level of sweetness for your taste buds.

Tips for the Best Homemade Cinnamon Butter

If your honey isn't runny, place the bottle in warm water to loosen it up.

After adding the salt, taste the cinnamon butter and see if you need to make any adjustments.

Powdered sugar makes a big difference in terms of both taste and texture. While you can skip it, your cinnamon butter won't have that exact Texas Roadhouse flavor.


What to Serve with Cinnamon Butter

Cinnamon butter tastes amazing when slathered over freshly baked dinner rolls, homemade muffins, scones, toast, biscuits, quick bread, and more! Spread it over cinnamon rolls for an extra helping of that delicious cinnamon flavor.

Cinnamon Butter Variations

Looking to make dairy-free cinnamon butter? Use margarine instead of butter.

For a vegan-friendly cinnamon butter, use agave nectar or maple syrup instead of honey.

To make keto cinnamon butter, swap your preferred sweetener and a liquid sweetener for the powdered sugar and honey.

You can add other ingredients to this recipe like more spices (nutmeg or pumpkin spice are amazing), apple sauce, or other pureed fruits.

How to Store Cinnamon Butter

Keep your cinnamon butter fresh by storing it in an airtight container and placing it in the fridge. Use it within 1 month.

Can you Freeze Homemade Cinnamon Butter?

Absolutely! Frozen cinnamon butter will stay good for up to 6 months.


Cream the butter, honey, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl until smooth.
