For bourbon pecan butter: Place all ingredients in a bowl, blending together with a fork. Place butter on a piece of plastic wrap and roll into a tube shape and refrigerate.
For Apple Compote: In a large skillet, over medium heat, melt butter. Add apples and cook for 1 minute. Add sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, toss to coat apples. Add cranberries and cook for 1 more minute until apples are just tender.
For pancakes: Place pieces of butter into each of 4 individual souffle dishes. Place dishes on a baking sheet in oven just long enough to melt butter.
In a food processor blend eggs until foamy. Add milk, flour and salt, processing until smooth, about 30 seconds.
Remove baking sheet from oven and pour 1/2 cup batter into each dish. Return to oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375 degrees F. and bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven.
Cut bourbon pecan butter into 4 equal portions and place 1 portion on top of each souffle pancake. Top with equal portions of apple compote and serve immediately.
