Homemade Butterhorns and Maple Butter

Montreal is a long way from Edmonton, you can purchase real French Canadian maple syrup here but you have to go to the airport or a pricey specialty store to buy maple butter.

The two most delicious things I ate in Montreal, was Schwartz’s Montreal smoked meat and maple butter.  I would prefer to go to Montreal every fall to get some,  but realistically I had to learn to make my own.   (Sigh)

Maple Butter Recipe

To make maple butter, in a medium saucepan cook 1 cup of 100% real maple syrup over medium heat until it reaches soft ball stage. (240 F).

Add 3/4 cup of butter cut into little bits and stir until the butter melts.

Add 1 heaping tsp of cinnamon.

Pour into  a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and let cool for 5 min.

Then beat it on high until it cools and loses its gloss.

Pour into a container, cover and store in the fridge.

This stuff is amazing on good old fashioned toast. But today I made some butter horns to go with it.

Butterhorn Recipe

You don’t see butterhorns much anymore, but this recipe was a staple at our house when feeding packs of starving post practice football players.  The butterhorns can be mixed the night before and then placed in the fridge overnight before finishing.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a  large bowl.

4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup sugar

Now soak the yeast to soften.  In a second small bowl mix together.

1 pkg yeast
1 tsp sugar

1/2 cup warm water

Let stand until yeast becomes frothy.

Mix the wet ingredients:

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter

1 egg ( room temperature)

Set out the egg to warm to room temp. Scald the milk, add the butter so it can melt.  Set aside until lukewarm.  Once lukewarm, add the egg and the yeast mixture.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add in the wet ingredients and mix.    You can leave the dough in the fridge overnight like I did.  Finish and bake them in the morning so you can serve them warm.

Let rise until double in bulk.   Roll out the dough on a floured board/counter.  Spread with butter, roll up like a jelly roll and cut into 1 inch slices.  Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise about an hour.  Bake at 375 for 25 min.

These are soft and not too sweet.    The butter horns are also good cut in half and grilled.
