Ingredients
  • Berry, Honey, and Cinnamon Compound Butter Recipe:
  • 8 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen berries (thawed, if frozen)
  • 1 to 2 tsps. honey
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • For the Roasted Garlic Compound Butter:
  • 8 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 4 to 6 cloves of roasted garlic (to your taste preference), mashed
  • 1/16 tsp. delicate finishing salt, like Himalayan pink salt, Maldon’s, or grey salt
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients for your particular butter in a bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer.
  2. If mixing by hand, use a spatula to stir and mix all ingredients together until thoroughly combined. If using a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment at medium-high speed for a two until everything is well combined.
  3. At this point, you can taste the butter to see if it needs additional ingredients or seasoning.
  4. Scrape the butter onto the far end of a piece of wax paper and start rolling the wax paper tightly, shaping the butter into a roll as you go and pressing the ends in.
  5. Twist the ends of the wax paper tightly, giving the butter one last shaping, and place into the fridge for at least two hours.
  6. Slice into the butter and serve over whatever you wish!
