What to do with 5 pounds of Amish butter

Went shopping yesterday and the market had gotten in a shipment of 5 pound logs of Amish butter for $6. Very creamy and rich tasting. What to make, what to make?

Mmmmm, butter. Pound cake. Baklava. Fresh homemade artisan bread. Shortbread cookies. Butter cookies.

Any and everything that requires lots of butter, freeze some for a later holiday treat.

You can find a very nice London Broil and as you are broiling this in the oven, brush with a mixtures of butter, cracked black pepper, and minced garlic or garlic powder. Mamma and DA do this to steaks also, under the broiler.

Is it salted or unsalted butter?

I don't know how fast you guys use butter, but at my house, I would chunk it, by eye, into pounds and then into quarter pounds and freeze it. I would leave one pound in the fridge. Did you know that unsalted butter lasts longer in the freezer than salted butter. I think it's because salt lowers the freezing point of water.


Compound butters
Banana bread
Pear Tarte or just the crust or with apples (that was really good)
Quick Chocolate Cake TNT

Salt was originally added to butter to give it a longer shelf life.
