Really, just about any flavor combination you can come up with can be worked into softened butter. I made Lime Chili Butter, Peach Cinnamon Brown Sugar Butter, and Maple Walnut Butter and they all turned out spectacular. (Melissa-I made the Gingerbread Butter and am in love)

What youll need:

A hand mixer or stand mixer

A bowl

A food processor

Ingredients:

Real butter (each recipe is for one stick)4

For the Lime Chili Butter:

A lime

Chili powder

For the Peach Cinnamon Brown Sugar Butter:

Frozen peaches

Cinnamon

Brown sugar

For the Maple Walnut Butter:

Maple syrup (real is best, but pancake syrup works)

Chopped walnuts

For the Gingerbread Butter:

Molasses

Nutmeg

Cinnamon

Ginger

Basic Instructions

For any flavored butter youd like to try, start with room temperature, softened butter.

Whip the butter on with a hand mixer on medium for about two minutes. You want it to be soft and light.

Blend in ingredients on low, or stir them in with a spoon.

You can either pack the butter into a 4 ounce jar or line a square container with wax paper and mold the butter. If you chose to mold the butter, wrap it in clean waxed paper and decorate with paper or a ribbon.

A stick of butter is four ounces, so if you add something more substantial than spices, youre going to have too much butter for a 4 ounce jar. Darn. Youre going to have to eat the rest yourself!
