Nut Butter

Compound butters are very versatile and add a nice touch to a number of dishes. The sweeter butters are delicious when spread on toast or served with pancakes, while the more savory ones can enhance the flavor of a steak hot off the grill, or finish a soup before serving. Our list is only a suggestion – use your imagination and play around with your favorite flavors.



½         cup toasted nuts (cashews and walnuts are excellent choices)

8          tablespoons unsalted GOOD quality butter, like Plugra or Kerrygold, room temperature

            pinch sea salt

            pinch ground cinnamon (optional)


1.   Put nuts into the work bowl fitted with the chopping blade. Pulse a few times to chop. Add butter, salt and cinnamon, if using. Process until fully combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape bowl as necessary.

2.   Remove butter from bowl and place on a sheet of waxed paper. With the aid of the paper, form the butter into a log. Roll and wrap well in plastic. Butter can either be refrigerated or frozen.
