A delicious spread for scones, biscuits, croissants and muffins. It has the perfect combination of mildly sweet, tangy and creamy. I primarily use it on scones--and I highly recommend the fabulous Puyallup Fair Scones recipe (which that recipe has been posted on Recipezaar). But the Spiced Rum Orange Scone Butter is rather versatile, and you'll find that it goes well with lots of different kinds of breakfast rolls and breads. The recipe quantity is a guess. We usually use it as soon as I make it, and I've never taken the time to measure it.

Made for ZWT6 because DH & I are hosting a family brunch the dy after the British part of the Tour ends & I needed some tasty + easily made-ahead recipes for it. Altho essentially made as written, I did opt to use brandy instead of rum extract & it was excellent. Like another recipe, it awaits my guests tomorrow as an optional topping for bagels & its versatility makes me foresee many uses. Thx for posting this recipe for us.
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
- 1 tablespoon rum extract
- 1⁄3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 orange, zest of
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ginger

Directions See How It's Made
- With an electric mixer, cream all of the ingredients together to a smooth and fluffy consistency.
- Serve on freshly baked scones, biscuits, muffins or croissants. It's also good as a topping for pancakes, crepes, and bagels.
- STORING TIP - If not using immediately, place the spiced butter in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. For easier spreading, let the spiced butter reach room temperature before using.
- SUBSTITUTION - If you don't have any rum extract on hand--or you just want to try something different, try replacing the rum extract with 1-2 tablespoons Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum, Grand Marnier, Triple Sec, Cointreau or other orange liqueur.
