This deliciously rich butter lamb is a cute and visual way to celebrate an Easter or spring meal. My Polish family makes a butter lamb every Easter. It's a special part of our Easter basket, which is blessed at church on Holy Saturday.

My whole family arrives early on Christmas morning-all of them looking for this delicious French toast with its cinnamon and nutmeg butter. It's easy to make and serve-and always a hit! Children enjoy it as much as my adult guests.
I came up with this rich, nutty spread as a way to jazz up toast. But my big family also looks for it on my holiday brunch buffet. It's a festive topper for muffins, biscuits, rolls and even slices of pound cake.
