Fill disposable decorator bags with
softened flavored butter and freeze the entire bag. When ready to use, defrost
the butter in the refrigerator and then bring to room temperature before using
to create designs atop main courses or as a garnish to any meal.
Try placing swirled dollops of pumpkin butter on top of warm bread or crackers
as an appetizer for a family gathering. For an extra-special breakfast, place
buttery designs on top of French toast or raisin bread.
