Homemade Maple Pecan Butter

Homemade Maple Pecan Butter
Spread on pancakes or French toast, or serve with hot biscuits and smoked ham.
  1. ½ cup toasted, cooled pecan halves
  2. 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  3. 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  4. ¼ teaspoon maple extract
  5. ⅛ teaspoon salt
  1. In food processor fitted with a chopping blade, pulse pecans until coarsely chopped. Add remaining ingredients, and pulse several times to blend, scraping down sides of bowl in between.
  2. After blending the butter and seasonings, let the mixture stand for an hour at room temperature, allowing the flavors to develop. Taste, and adjust the seasonings if desired.
  3. Wrap the flavored butter well in plastic wrap, waxed paper, or parchment paper to protect its freshness, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  1. A food processor or electric mixer is helpful for blending all the ingredients quickly. If you have neither, the flavoring ingredients can be finely chopped with a knife, and everything may be mixed by hand, using a wooden spoon, until well blended.
