1 lb butter
4 tablespoons powdered sugar
6 tablespoons strawberry preserves
Remove butter from fridge and allow it to soften for about 30 minutes. Wash and finely chop fresh strawberries. If you prefer, you may put them in a small food processor and give them a good chop. Combine butter, powdered sugar, strawberry preserve and finely chopped strawberries into a small bowl. Whip by hand until well mixed. If you are using unsalted butter, add salt to taste (a few pinches should be plenty). Place in the fridge. You can just stick the bowl of strawberry butter in the fridge, or you can mold the butter into shapes. Even if you don't have molds, chill the butter, and then use a cookie cutter to make shapes. Tips & Warnings:. This butter will keep for about 10 days in the fridge and 2 months in the freezer.
