American Cafe's Chive Butter

Angie Forester


Many many people have tried to recreate this chive butter, including myself & there are so many rumors flying around about what all is in this spread. But I am here to set the record straight, it's not Boursin cheese, it's not cream cheese, it's SOUR CREAM mixed in with the butter!!
