agave nut butter

We caught a brief glimpse of summer earlier this week in NYC. The high on Monday was 84 degrees and I, of course, hated it. I much prefer April showers to April sweating. However I will say that the warmer weather was perfect for a sunset bridge stroll

It was also perfect for smearing sweet, flavored butter onto crisp, cold fruit.

I switched out the butter and honey for Earth Balance and agave in this beautiful recipe from Lauren at The Talking Kitchen, and my new favorite fruit/bread/muffin/everything spread was born. Unlike the Raspberry Butter that I made a while back, I decided to serve this butter as a soft spread rather than rolling it into a log and refrigerating. Either method works great.

  1. I’m going to have to try this! I usually just use plain old peanut butter to dip my apples in, but this would be a nice departure from that.
