The concept of "Gooey Toast" was introduced to me by one of my girlfriends and it is...well...just yummy to put it in technical eating terms! In her family it is a comfort food that G'ma used to make for the grandkids and I can see why.
It's good on plain ole toast, but it is really fabulous on good bagels or homemade bread. I tried it tonight on this Rustic Artisan Bread (what-ever!).
1 c. butter, softened (no substitues, please!)
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 t. cinnamon
Blend all three ingredients in small bowl, either by hand or with a mixer (I've done both and both worked well).
Spread on warm bread or toast for a sweet accompaniment to a hearty meal, or as a midnight snack...or even for dessert.
