Whipped Cranberry Butter [Holiday Recipe Exchange]

I promised when I shared my recipe for Cranberry Orange Walnut Relish that I’d share some ideas for using leftover cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving. I already showed you how to make these cute Bite Sized Mini Cranberry Walnut Tarts.

Whipped Cranberry Butter is another delicious way to use up leftover cranberry sauce.  I love it spread on hot toast or Buttermilk Biscuits fresh from the oven.

Whipped Cranberry Butter is one of those recipes that looks and tastes impressive – it is a snap to prepare. It doesn’t take more than 5 minutes and you’ve got a sweet, tangy, butter spread to accompany your Holiday table.

Butter is so essential this time of year with all the baking that we do, so I can’t wait to see what you all have in store for Jamie and me with this Butter Themed Holiday Recipe Exchange.

Ever since trying Kerrygold butter last year I have been a bit obsessed. All butters may resemble one another in form and color. But get into the taste and texture and you’ll start to notice the difference. Kerrygold butter is a soft and creamy in texture, while the taste is full in flavor. When I use Kerrygold in baked goods the result is exceptional buttery goodness and a more tender crumb.

My grocery store carries it on occasion so I am always keeping my eyes open and stocking up when I do see it. I am really excited that they are our again this year and can’t wait to giveaway another Kerrygold Butter and Cheese Basket! Link up your favorite butter recipe, or leave it in the comments for a chance to win this awesome gift basket.

Head over to My Baking Addiction to check out what buttery treat Jamie has in store for us this week.

Whipped Cranberry Butter

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


1 cup Kerrygold salted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup leftover cranberry sauce, such as Cranberry Orange Walnut Relish


Add butter to a medium sized bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add the cranberry sauce and beat until incorporated into the butter and the mixture is light and airy. Serve immediately. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Tastes delicious on Buttermilk Biscuits.


If you want the mixture to remain spreadable after refrigeration, you will have to incorporate some oil into the mixture. (see: Incredible Spreadable Butter Recipe). Alternatively, just bring the butter to room temperature after refrigeration before you serve.
