Walnut Brown Sugar Butter

I don't know about you...but Thanksgiving is a HUGE deal in my family.  There is so much food, I think we could feed an entire town....but we love it and always have a fabulous time....food, family and lots of laughs, what else could you ask for?! We gather up our families and drive to one of my siblings homes, with many a "pot luck" dishes in hand. We all bring an appetizer, because heaven forbid that we might get hungry before we actually eat dinner, as well as at least ONE pot luck dish to contribute to the meal. I always like to bring something new (along with something I've made before)...to try out on the family, you know, to shake things up a little bit with the "routine foods" that we eat over the holidays. A few years ago I tried a "Walnut Cranberry Butter" recipe that was AMAZING (watch for that recipe around Christmas), we spread it on hot rolls and happily there wasn't a bit of it left over for me to take home...guess that means it was a success?! A few weeks ago I made this Walnut Brown Sugar Butter which I think will be making an appearance at this years Thanksgiving Feast!!! It was so darn good that I ate way too many pieces of homemade bread, more than I should have, but I couldn't help myself...it was just that good! Its quick, its easy and its delicious! See what happens when you put it on your Thanksgiving table today....go ahead, try it out.

Walnut Brown Sugar Butter
1 c. butter (REAL butter not margarine)
1/3 c. brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. finely chopped walnuts

Let butter sit at room temperature for 30-40 minutes to soften up (don't want it melted, just soft enough). With a wooden spoon, smash butter and brown sugar together until mixed well. Add chopped walnuts and stir until all ingredients are well combined. Put in a serving dish and refrigerate until ready to use. Spread on bread, rolls or eat it with a spoon...you choose!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! 
Enjoy your day~
Give thanks for all the many blessings and bounty that you have been given. 

Happy Cooking~
Julie
