Kim's notes for this recipe:
Talk about the house smelling delicious....wow this Cherry Vanilla Butter sure had a wonderful aroma. It is a very easy butter to make since you can process it in the crockpot. I did not measure my cherries but just filled my large crock a little over 1/2 way full. It was easy and fun to make this butter and the taste is amazing!

I found this recipe on:trainsandtutus.com/cherry-v...

It was a wonderful tuturial and super easy to follow.

Hope you enjoy.

June 17th, 2014 --- I must share that I used this sour cherry vanilla butter in this recipe I am posting Apple Butter Bars and it was fabulous! I will be making them again & again. I didn't have any apple butter but remembered my cherry butter so I used it instead. It was a perfect match.
