Butter makes everything better, right? We couldn't agree more. 

We definitely recommend trying our new cow's milk European-style cultured butter on its own, but this recipe for paprika compound butter is pretty fantastic. 

What is compound butter?

Essentially, compound butter is softened butter creamed together with fresh or dried herbs and spices. Compound butter is great when used to add flavor to sauces or on top of meat or vegetables. It can also be spread on top of baked goods.
