The annual Sew and Sews Christmas Exchange
Three talented ladies

Every year, we all make either a handmade gift or give a fun quilting related item to each member of our quiting bee.  We always have a delicious luncheon, exchange gifts and have a fanstatic show and tell.    

This year I decided to make an herbed butter loaf for each member of my Sew and Sews Quilt Bee for our annual Christmas gift exchange.  

Every year my neighbor orders farm fresh butter from a cheese shop in Hillsboro, Wisconsin.  The butter comes in 2 pound logs.

Here is my adapted recipe:

Herbed Butter

2 sticks unsalted butter
1 clove garlic minced
1 medium shallot sliced very thin and chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped parsely
splash of white wine
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Allow butter to soften, combine all ingredients together in bowl.  Mix well.  Place in freezer for 10 minutes for butter to harden slightly.

Place butter mixture on plastic wrap and roll into log shape.  Wrap in parchment paper, twist ends to seal.  Add decorative baker's twine on each end if desired.

Makes one large log or two small logs.


 Spread on crusty bread, use on baked potatoes,  add to steam veggies,  spread on top of a toasted bagel.  Yum!

It lasts for about a week in the refrigerator or you can freeze it for about 3 months.  The flavor intensifies within a day or two in the refrigerator.
