cinnamon brandy butter

This beats any bought version and is not only great with the usual mince pies or Christmas pudding, but it's also delicious spread on crumpets, toasted teacakes and thick-cut toast.

175g unsalted butter at room temperature
175g caster sugar
4tbsp brandy
1tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp grated orange zest

Beat everything together with an electric mixer until smooth and light in texture and colour. The butter can now be spooned into a small jar or container and stored in the fridge. Serve at room temperature.

Tie a label and ribbon around the jar and place in a gift bag.

Top tip.
You don't have to use brandy – rum, whisky, Grand Marnier or other liqueurs all work well.

P.S - this goes especiialy well with the spiced christmas shortbread!
