Easy Cinnamon Butter Board Appetizer


During the busy holiday season, any recipe that can be put together quickly is a must. For the cinnamon butter recipe, just beat the honey, sugar, and cinnamon until smooth. Next, add your salt preference (I start small because you can always add more but can’t take it out!)

Thanksgiving Twist

Now comes the fun part! For a Thanksgiving twist on this easy cinnamon butter board, I used a spreading knife to create turkey feathers out of the butter mixture.

To make the turkey, start with one outer layer and overlap it with an inside layer using small servings of the cinnamon butter on the spreading knife. I decorated these “feathers” with raisins and mixed nuts and other options are granola, cereal, or pretzels.

For the turkey’s face, use decorator’s frosting to adhere edible googly eyes (usually in the baking section of your local grocery store). You can use frosting to add a nut or raisin for the beak and frosting or licorice for the neck.

I displayed the turkey on my MacKenzie Child’s checkered chopping board and it came out so cute!

Side Options

What I love about this easy cinnamon butter board is that you can create more of an appetizer or dessert tray depending on the side items. I used croissant rolls and assorted breads for a yummy appetizer, or veggies would also be delicious for a healthier option! For a dessert spread, you could add sliced apples, graham crackers, cornbread, banana bread, pumpkin bread, pretzels, cookies, or brownies.

As an added festive touch, you can use seasonal cookie cutters to trim the baked goods into any shape, such as pumpkins to go with the Thanksgiving feel. (The cornbread is especially easy for this because it’s denser and won’t crumble as easily.)

Tip: Use a separate serving platter for the turkey, then place that on top of another tray so the items don’t roll onto the turkey feathers! I used this beautiful party tray for my side items and just placed the cutting board with the turkey inside. These autumn spreaders make the perfect autumn touch as well.
