A distinctive way to serve butter is to cut or mold it into shapes.  Unusual ice cube trays work well and produce shells (as  shown) and other shapes. ....  Or you can slice the butter and then use a mini cookie cutter to create flowers, hearts, stars, and moons.

This spread (shown on left)  is delicious on breads.  Cream 2 oz. butter and 4oz. cream cheese, 1/4 tsp. vanilla, and 1 Tblsp. powdered sugar together. 

A dish of orange butter (on right) is always a welcomed spread.  Just mix 1 stick of butter and 1/4 c. of orange marmalade together.  Any flavor preserves (strawberry,fig, or blackberry) can be substituted for the marmalade.

  1. Wish I could reach into the picture and try a piece of bread with either spread. Guess I'd just have to have two pieces.
