Softened butter with Olive Oil

Vickey Yott Morrissey


We use this in place of those expensive butters. I like that it softens up so quickly, and that it contains olive oil.
I usually double this recipe to make a large tub.
Remove from refrigerator for a few minutes prior to buttering toast or for anything really soft.

You can add honey to this to make a really nice honey butter. Works great on English Muffins.
