Vanilla Bean Whipped Honey Butter

I have had pancakes, bread and butter on my mind for weeks.  Since we enjoyed our brunch pancake bar I can't stop thinking about flavor combinations.
I love love love vanilla and it really comes through in this Vanilla Bean Honey Butter Recipe.

Scrumptious enough to eat with a spoon, this butter is sweet and bursting with vanilla flavor.  It is a total treat when spread on homemade bread and heated.  It reminds me of a bear claw I would eat when I was young, smothered in butter.  So delicious.

I made this butter to serve with our pancake bar, but it is fabulous everywhere.  Cover and refrigerate when not using and it will last for weeks.

Speaking of sweet breakfasts...  I am so excited that in a few weeks we will be eating beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans!  I am so excited I could scream.  We will be enjoying a family vacation for an entire week.  I am researching and going crazy trying to put our itinerary together.

We really need your help and expertise.  Where should we stay, what should we see, what should we eat???  Tell me, tell me, tell me.
