Shallot Herb Butter Cooking tips:

Slicing butter into tablespoons allow for butter to reach room temperature 10x’s faster. If you cannot find a shallot use 4 cloves of garlic. Only use unsalted butter, this helps you control the amount of salt in your butter. Have fun mixing different herbs in the butter too!

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: Add the butter to wax paper and roll into a log shape. Place in a freezer storage bag. Keep in freezer. Place in fridge 1 day before you plan to use.

Fridge: Add the butter to wax paper and roll into a log shape or place in an airtight container. Place in fridge 1 month max.
