Whipped Vanilla Butter Recipe

Top your pancakes, waffles, or toast with this lightly sweetened butter, and you’ll feel like you’re having dessert for breakfast. Increase the amount of sugar if you like it sweeter. Unsweetened, it can be used for sautéing fruit and in lieu of plain butter in baked goods.

• 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
• 1 vanilla bean
• 1 tablespoon sugar

1. In a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until light and creamy.

2. With a paring knife, cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Use the tip of the knife to scrape out the seeds, reserving the pod for another use. Add the vanilla seeds and sugar to the butter and beat until blended, stopping the mixer once or twice to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
