for a simple christmas..... yourself a favor and make Cinnamon Honey Spread for friends and family members! It's so, so easy.

Here's the rundown of how to make it, thanks to Darcy:

4 oz Ball Canning Jars (making 5-6 jars)
2 Sticks Softened Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Honey
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon

Mix all of the ingredients using your mixer until the consistency is smooth. Some people in the blogosphere use their wisk attachment, but I just used my regular handheld mixer and it worked fine (mostly because I don't have a fancy mixer with said wisk attachment). The easiest way to get it in the canning jars is to spoon the mixture into a ziploc bag, cut off a corner, and pipe it in.

A note on purchasing the canning jars...I looked at Walmart and Target for these, but the only place I found them was Ace Hardware.

This looks yummy! Ha, since I finished my papers I have begun to fantasize about all the baking/cooking projects I am going to undertake, but this one actually looks doable! My Target has canning jars, which is a little funny since I know very few people who actually can things. In fact, I have a few left over from the last time I gave away something in a jar.

I apologize for my wordiness - I am so used to typing frantically that a lot of words come out, even when they don't need to. :)

Having just finished weeks of buying the perfect thing for so many people, I totally see the genius in doing something like this, simple, easy, sure to be well received.

I'm putting THIS on my list for next holiday.

PS: and I loved Cry Baby.
