Easy Hostess Gift-Flavored Butters

We hosted a Christmas Party on Monday evening this week. Besides dinner, good company, conversation and eats it’s nice to send friends home with a little something extra.

I deliberated for weeks over what to offer as gifts. Finally I decided on flavored butters. the options are endless, as butter is such a good base for all kinds of added flavors.

I didn’t come up with my own recipes, simply searched Pinterest until I found two I liked. 12 small canning jars, 2 pounds of butter and some flavorings-herbs, fruits, jams-is all you need. Add a tag labeling the flavor and you’ve got a great little homemade party favor!

I chose Cranberry Orange Honey Butter and Cinnamon Sugar Honey Butter (think Texas Roadhouse). Both were made ahead of time and left in the refrigerator overnight until we needed them.

If you’re interested, here are the details of our dinner!

Dinner was a spread of antipasto, breads, cheeses, dessert cups and soups-White Chicken Chili and Sausage with Shells.

I placed our favors on our front table for friends to take as they went out our front door.

Merry Christmas!
