AIMEE’S ORANGE BUTTER RECIPE:
1 cup Butter (not margarine)
1.5 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon orange extract
Zest from one orange
TO MAKE: You will need softened butter, but you do not want to completely melt it. Leave butter out on the counter for a few hours ahead of time, or if you’re in a hurry, microwave for 15-30 seconds and keep a close eye. Begin by whipping the butter until fluffy. Add the other ingredients and blend until smooth. This recipe works great doubled.
We make this recipe using a stand mixer, like a Kitchen-Aid, fitted with the fabulous Beater Blade, which has little scrapers built in so you don’t have to stop the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl. It is totally life changing and worth every cent!
