It's one of those no stress potluck hostess gifts that can be set out or popped in the fridge for some other time. Above is my all time favorite Spicy Roasted Garlic version.

DIY Flavored Butters 3 Ways
Whipping up these flavored butters is really easy! Use slightly room temperature unsalted butter and either a whisk or, as I like to, a mortar and pestle to cream everything together well. Then transfer to a container or roll into logs between sheets of wax paper and pop into the fridge. Here's how to do it 3 ways:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped hot peppers
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • A dash of freshly ground white Muntok pepper to taste

  • #2
  • Lavender, Chive and Parsley Butter
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon lavender buds
  • 4 Tablespoons chopped chives

  • # 3
  • Sweet Nutty Cheese Butter
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 Tablespoons Roquefort blue cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoons finely chopped or ground pecan nuts
