Pecan Butter is another flavored butter that’s terrific on pancakes or toast… it’s easy to make and adds so much to foods… the finishing touch!
I’ve always used flavored butters.. and am always on the lookout for more ideas. This idea came from the Food Network… I tried their version and decided it needed more … just about more of everything… so here is my recipe for Pecan Butter.
I always use unsalted butter… if you want salt .. you can always add it.
You need to get your butter softened… do not microwave it.. the ends will melt and the center will still be hard… just set it out and let it soften naturally.
Most flavored butters can be put into a ramekin and served like that… I prefer to make it into a small log and slice it… the easiest way to do that is to… after you’ve mixed the ingredients… dump it onto a piece of plastic wrap… use the plastic wrap to roll it into shape.. then twist the ends of the plastic wrap closed and finish shaping it.. don’t handle it too much or it will melt.
Toast your pecans before chopping…. For instructions How to Toast Pecans… see my post..
I used my mini chopper to chop the pecans.. you want them chopped finely.
Try this… it’s delicious!
