Nothing says summer is coming like strawberries. I love all things strawberry — jam, shortcake, syrup, you name it I love it. That’s why I was so excited to try Ellen’s strawberry butter recipe from her blog Confessions of an Overworked Mom. It’s really good and has been a huge hit in our home. I pretty much followed her recipe with just a change or two. It’s super simple.
5 large strawberries
1 stick of butter at room temperature (a little squishy is good)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 drops orange essential oil (you can skip this, but wow, it’s really good)
Cut up your butter and put all your ingredients into a food processor. (Someday maybe I’ll get one, but for now I just used my little chopper that goes with my immersion blender.)
Mix unitl smooth. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Super quick and really yummy on toast. I hope you enjoy.
