Mr. Waller's strawberry farm is less than half-mile away from my house.
Simplicity at its best: whipped butter, powder sugar, and fresh strawberries.
Recipe by Teri Bell aka Miss Sophie
3 sticks of butter, softened but cool, divided
1/2 to 3/4 cups of finely sliced fresh strawberries
1/4- 1/2 cup powder sugar (depending on how sweet you want the butter)
Begin with two sticks of softened butter whip it in a mixer (hand mixer works just great) until light and fluffy. Add strawberries and mix. Add powder sugar. Add the third stick of softened but cool butter, and whip it well. This gives the butter a beautiful fluffy consistency.
Store in refrigerator up to a week. Bring the butter to room temperature before serving. Serve on warm bread, biscuits, or even pancakes!
