I got this on a web site:
fromcalculustocupcakes.com/mini-stra...

They both look and sound delicious, and pretty easy to make. I am sharing it with you; although it is not likely a new idea, I haven't seen one using this "Strawberry Butter". It sounds a lot like jam...but you know when you say "the same, only different?!
