Homemade Infused Butters for Mom

Infused Butters

As always, the Dairymaids got your back on Mother's Day. Every year, my mom insists that she already has everything she needs. And let's face it, mom does not want anything in the tchotchke department, unless she actually collects porcelain kitties. Come by the warehouse and see us - we have countless ideas, like fabulous Lucky Layla butter, that you can flavor by hand.

Infused or compound butters are so easy to make and the possibilities are endless. Little mason jars make for a lovely presentation and are easy to gift. Plus, they will melt mom's heart like... butter. (sorry)

Bourbon and Vanilla Bean Butter

1 cup Lucky Layla butter, at room temperature
1 vanilla pod, beans scraped out
2 tablespoons bourbon

Garlic and Herb Butter

1 cup Lucky Layla butter, at room temperature
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
1 lemon, zested

Chiriboga Blue Butter

1/2 cup Lucky Layla butter, at room temperature
4 oz Chiriboga Blue, at room temperature

Add ingredients to butter and whip to combine using a hand mixer. Transfer to an 8 ounce jar.

* Keep refrigerated for one month or frozen for 3 months
