Orange Maple Butter

Cuisinart original


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.
