Course Brunch
Cuisine American
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 full sticks of butter

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter softened (Each stick of butter is equivalent to 8 tablespoons)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange flavor or 1 teaspoon of orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons orange liqueur
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries

Instructions

  • Add softened butter to a blender.
  • Blend the butter for about 3 minutes. (I usually use my blender's whisk component to mix this butter.)
  • Add the orange flavor or orange zest, liqueur, and powdered sugar into the mixer bowl.
  • Blend for another 3 minutes.
  • Add more sugar to taste.
  • Blend for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the raspberries and blend for about minute.
  • Let the butter sit out for about 15 to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend together.
  • Spoon the butter onto a piece of parchment or freezer paper and carefully wrap the parchment paper around the butter creating a log.
  • Place the wrapped butter in a plastic food storage bag, and then place the wrapped butter in the freezer.
  • Freeze the butter for a few hours to allow the butter to form into a log or block form.
  • You can then remove the butter and transfer it to the refrigerator to soften the butter just a bit before use.

Notes

Meal Planning Tip: I like to separate this butter into individual small portions so that I can have multiple portions in the freezer for several meals.
