From my Mother's kitchen

Whenever I go back home to visit my parents, I always peruse my mother's kitchen cupboards looking for long lost kitchen gadgets.  This Christmas, I stumbled upon this little guy: a butter mold.  

This day and age, everyone is more about flavored butters.  There are herb whipped butters, lemon name it! I love that you don't see many people mold their butters anymore.  It made it feel like a novelty when I gave it a try.

Don't they look elegant?

Now, I didn't make these for a special dinner I was making or anything.  I just made them for fun.  But I must say, it made eating breakfast this morning feel quite fancy.

Here's to feeling fancy! Happy Thursday!


  1. They look so pretty! I have candy molds that I haven't used in such a long time. I will have to try this with them ~ thank you for the inspiration! Have a great day!

    1. Thanks Susan! Candy molds are a great idea to use for these too!

  2. Your butter rosettes are so pretty! What a way to impress your guests!
