Homemade Walnut Honey Butter

I'm not sure about you, but I love going to Outback Steakhouse. Not just for their steak, but because if you're smart, you'll know to ask for honey butter with the fresh loaf of bread that comes out *wink wink*, not just plain old butter (which let's face it, is amazing). I think plain butter is so amazing, I actually named a blog after it. Hey check it out, it's this blog right here. Wait a second..

I decided to make this butter because it's really easy to do, and eating honey butter on bread just makes me happy. And it seems so appropriate coming from me.
Butter and I go way back. Back to when I was a kid, and dreamt of eating a whole stick of butter plain. To this day, I still haven't done it. I guess I'm waiting until I get older, or until a day where I say "the hell with it, today is my butter fantasy eating day". But that day isn't today.

Today I get to enjoy this honey butter, with walnuts, on bread. And today, I get to say yum.
Homemade Walnut Honey Butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 (or more depending on your liking) cup good quality honey
1/4 cup crushes walnuts

Pour whipping cream in food processor. Let run for 5 minutes, or until cream begins to thicken, and until liquid begins to separate from solid. Pour honey into processor in two additions, letting processor run for 30 seconds in between each addition. Add in crushed walnuts. Mix until desired butter consistency. Drain as much liquid as possible. Spread on your favorite bread. Enjoy. Delish.

Butter will keep in refrigerator for 5 days in air-tight container.
