Ingredients (5)

  • 8 tablespoons or 1 stick softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon dark molasses
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon ground clove


Packed with the flavors of fall, this compound butter improves anything it tops. It’s a natural on baked sweet potatoes or pancakes, but it also holds its own on a seared pork chop or a late-night snack of cinnamon toast.


Place 8 tablespoons softened unsalted butter (1 stick) in a medium bowl and mash with a spatula until spreadable. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon dark (a.k.a. robust) molasses, 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, and 1/16 teaspoon ground clove and stir to combine.
