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.
After strawberry picking for the first time, I developed this fruity, spreadable butter. Try other fruit spreads using raspberries, blackberries, even seedless jams like apricot, my favorite. —Julie Herrera-Lemler, Rochester, Minnesota
Tired of plain old peanut butter? Try this slightly sweet alternative made from nutritious walnuts. It's a deliciously different spread for toast, bagels and English muffins. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Looking for a tasty way to use up those pumpkins and have a wonderful gift during the holidays? My pumpkin butter is delicious on biscuits or homemade bread, and also makes a tempting filling for miniature tart shells. —Wanda Richardson, Somers, Montana
