Well aren't these the cutest things? They're softened butter, mixed with berry jam then plopped onto wax paper and shaped into hearts with the back of a spoon.
Wouldn't they be perfect to serve with toast for a special breakfast? Or to serve at tea time with scones?
3 T. butter, softened
1 1/2 T. jam (I used olallieberry)
When the butter is soft, smush it into the jam with the back of a spoon.
Make 5 little piles on wax paper, then use the spoon to shape into hearts. Refrigerate.
Don't you think you could make these ahead and freeze them to whip out for company?
And if THAT works, don't you think you could make up some honey butter and freeze in little heart shapes for eating with biscuits some evening? Or chive butter and freeze for serving with baked potatoes?
The possibilities are endless.
Anyone have any great flavored butter ideas to share?
