How To Make A Spiced Apple Butter Pecan Board
Step 1: Prep the Board, Spread the Butter
Clean and dry your cutting board.
Using your offset spatula, turn it over to scoop up some of the spreadable butter, about 2 teaspoons, and place it on the board.
Make sure to leave space around the edge of the board.
Next, use a clean cloth to wipe the butter off the offset spatula and scoop out the same amount of apple butter.
Place the apple butter right next to the spreadable butter.
Keep alternating scoops of both kinds of butter and place them on the board to create a checkered pattern.
Step 2: Assemble, Serve, and Enjoy
Once the board is covered, get your toasted pecans and mixed spices, and place them close to your board.
Take some of the pecans, crush them, and spread them all over the butter-covered board.
Next, sprinkle the spice mix over your spread. Add as much spice as you like according to your taste buds.
The board is now complete.
