  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 & 1//4 cups maple syrup Grade A
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt *


  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until light and fluffy.
  • Very gradually add about half of the maple syrup and all the powdered sugar. Beat well.
  • Add the remaining maple syrup in small increments, beating well. Start to taste it towards the end. You might prefer less maple syrup!
  • Add salt (cautiously) and beat again.
  • Makes about 2 and 2/3 cup. Enough to fill 2 half-pint jars (or a 1 pint jar) and have enough leftover for you to scarf it down with your toast for a few days.
  • You can store this on the counter for a couple days, but since real maple syrup must be refrigerated after opening, I would throw it in the fridge if you don't think you'll use it up in a week or so.


*The amount of salt you add is up to you. I used 1/4 of kosher salt. If you use table salt, start with 1/8 teaspoon. Also you can totally use unsalted butter in the recipe; just add a pinch or two more salt.
