We are talking butter today…. You know, the single ingredient that seems to make all good food taste mind-blowingly, next-level amazing? Ya. That’s the one. Not just plain Jane butter, but Whipped Berry Butter. Oooh baby are you in for a treat! This butter is so flippin good. The fun part is you can whip it up, roll it in some wax paper and tin foil, and freeze it for your next soiree! How conveniently delicious is that?
I would venture to say that the BEST way to consume said Whipped Berry Butter is in, on, and around these light, moist, hot out of the oven crescent rolls.
These are a long time family favorite that we can’t seem to get enough of! If you are a baking newbie these are so on your level. They only take one rising time of a few hours until they are ready to pop in the oven! The best part about them is that you can freeze the dough (once its rolled up) to have on hand for another day! All you have to do is take them out the morning you plan to serve them (for dinner) and let them thaw, then rise till double on your countertop! No work involved, and there you’ll have a fresh hot roll to serve your friends and family. A.Ma.Zing. I shared my Perfect Crescent Freezer Rolls recipe over at I’m Topsy Turvy today so swing over to snag it! I put together some step-by-step photo instructions for you!
Today at Fresh & Happy we are looking at the super easy process of making and freezing Whipped Berry Butter! This simple recipe can be adapted to so many different flavor preferences! Just imagine…… I’m thinking herbed tomato butter, or Lemon Blueberry Butter… You could take it anywhere really… YUM! So let’s make this goodness happen people!
To start, wash, dry well and crush your berries.
Once your berries are pretty well crushed, pour them into a strainer and work out a bunch of the excess juice. Place it in the sink to drain off a little more while you get your butter whipped.
Place softened butter into an elecrtic mixer. Turn up to medium speed and whip butter until the color lightenes and the texture is light and soft. Pour in crushed berries, sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Mix together on high for a few minutes.
Set aside how much you plan to use into a small bowl and set in refrigerator. Place the remaining whipped berry butter onto a large sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap. Form into a long cylinder and roll up. Wrap it tin foil too. Now that it should be pretty air tight and formed nicely into a thin “log” it is ready to freeze for later use.
Ooh ya baby! That is looking just right for some serious spreading! Bake up some easy peasy crescent rolls and you are ready to feast like the champion you are!
