Incredibly Quick

The longest part of making this is letting the butter soften.

And it most definitely needs to be softened – don’t cheat on this step. If the butter isn’t soft, the rest isn’t going to cream or whip together well at all.

Once the butter is softened, it takes less than five minutes to finish and serve.

Whipped Butter

While creaming the ingredients together works wonderfully. Whipping it for an extra bit of airiness is even better.

Use a balloon whisk on your stand mixer for best results.

Take a couple of minutes to whisk together the honey and butter, scrape down the sides of the bowl and do it again for a much lighter texture.

Bigger Batch

If you’re serving a crowd, the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to have more.

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and eat up within 2 weeks.

Freeze for Later

If you do make a bigger batch or simply want to have some around in the winter when fresh berries are available, freeze the leftovers.

To freeze, simply wrap the raspberry honey butter in wax paper and form into logs. Store the logs in an airtight freezer bag.

Alternatively, use a small cookie scoop and place rounded Tablespoons of the butter onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Freeze for several hours, until solid. Then place those into airtight bags. This will allow servings of small portions later.

Use frozen raspberry butter up within 1 year for best flavor and to prevent freezer burn.

How to Use & Serve

Serve as a simple, sweet spread on breakfast and brunch tables, alongside your favorite breads.

It is quite nice on raspberry cream cheese muffins for extra raspberry flair but it also works wonderfully on plain biscuits and toast.

But the options for using it don’t end there. Slather it on homemade pancakes or waffles and add more honey or maple syrup for a truly delicious breakfast.

Use it instead of plain butter in cookie or cake recipes for a raspberry infused flavor.
