helpful tip


Add softened butter, herbs, and spices to a large bowl. Using a wooden spoon, mix to combine until butter is fluffy and everything is integrated.

Divide butter into two portions, and wrap each. I added mine to the center of a piece of parchment paper and rolled the paper around. I then formed the butter into a tube shape.
