Whipped Cranberry Butter

Whipped Cranberry Butter is a great way to use leftover cranberry sauce after Thanksgiving!

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.

For a chunky cranberry relish with golden raisins, walnuts, and plenty of orange, try this Cranberry Orange Walnut Relish.

If you prefer a smooth cranberry sauce, you’ll want to try this Red Wine Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce.

Fresh, tart cranberries are cooked and blended with agave, brown sugar, red wine, and pomegranate juice create a deliciously simple and smooth Red Wine Pomegranate Cranberry Sauce for your Thanksgiving feast.

Both of these cranberry recipes make incredible whipped cranberry butter!

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!
