Flavored Butters
by Suzanne Lieurance

Bread with butter is tasty any time. But bread with FLAVORED butter is a special treat everyone should try now and then.

Flavored butters with breakfast breads like scones, biscuits, quick breads, and croissants are an easy treat you can make for your family to enjoy on a lazy weekend morning.

All of these flavored butters are quick to prepare. Simply cream the softened butter and the other ingredient(s) together, put the butter on some waxed paper, roll it into a log, and store in the refrigerator. Allow the butter to soften before serving.

Note: It's best to use these butters within a day or two.

ORANGE BUTTER

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
Grated zest of 1 large orange
Good with scones, fresh muffins, or quick breads.

MAPLE BUTTER

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

Try this one on plain scones, bran muffins, or banana bread.

LEMON BUTTER

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 Tbsp. freshly grated lemon peel

Try this one on a hot blueberry muffin.

CINNAMON BUTTER

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 c. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon

Perfect on toast or biscuits.

CHOCOLATE BUTTER

1 stick butter, softened
1/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips, melted

Slather on a fresh, hot croissant or muffin.

PECAN BUTTER

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/3 c. finely chopped pecans

This is great on pumpkin bread or gingerbread.

Flavored butters are also good on pancakes or waffles, or try a little on hot cereal or grits. Chances are, whatever you enjoy with a little butter will be even better with a little FLAVORED BUTTER.
