2 teaspoons vanilla
4 day-old croissants, halved horizontally

Honey Butter

For a sweet spread that is terrific on everything from muffins to toast, combine equal amounts of softened butter or margarine and honey, then add a little vanilla extract. You'll want to keep a batch of this on hand to sweeten all your breakfasts.
