Whipped to Perfection

We have some incredibly generous neighbors and friends who have been very, very kind to us lately. Way above and beyond the call of neighborly duties I would dare say. Even though it's small, I wanted to give them something to show them how appreciative we are. Enter raspberry butter. It couldn't be easier but boy it tastes wonderful on fresh bread.

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1/2 cup raspberry preserves (or maybe a little more)
food processor
canning jar (what I used)

step 1: place equal parts butter and raspberry preserves in food processor.

step 2: cover and blend until fully mixed. you may have to open it and move around the butter a few times to get it completely blended. add more raspberry preserves if desired.

step 3: now that it's whipped to perfection, put the raspberry butter into a canning jar. this recipe fits perfectly inside an 8 oz. swirl a little bit of raspberry preserves on the top just so they get extra excited when they open it the first time.

step 4: punch out a 1" circle from cardstock and ever so smally write raspberry butter. it's a long word so keep it tight. then wrap your bread and go thank your friends! Oh, and don't forget to make extra for yourself. It's seriously all I've had for dinner for two nights now. Yum.

Try other flavors too! Mix and match; get creative. Tell me what delicious flavor combos you come up with. And I've got a little something arranged for the end of the week that you'll want to come back for! It involves percentages...think about it. :)


  1. Thanks for the link to the bread recipe. I have always been a little weary of making bread but maybe...with a few pointers? Your bread and raspberry butter look so yummy.

  2. That's the cutest little food processor that I have ever seen. And this looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. I will be making asap.
