easy apricot butter & croissants

This is one of my favorite “no-cook” recipes.  It is a huge crowd pleaser and it is so quick—perfect for an early breakfast meeting or a festive brunch (say Easter morning?)

Apricot Butter

What you’ll need:

  • 1 stick of room temperature unsalted butter (I like to leave mine out overnight, so it is very soft)
  • 2/3 cup of apricot preserves (I prefer Harry and David)
  • pinch of kosher salt
Step by Step:
1. Combine the ingredients in a stand mixer and mix with the paddle attachment until combined.
2.  Spoon into serving bowl.  I love a crisp white raminkin against the bright orange color.
You can also substitute any flavored jam  of your choice.  Raspberry and blackberry are particularly delicious.

I serve my apricot butter on store bought croissants that I have sliced and tossed in the oven on a baking sheet (350 degrees for 3-5 minutes, serve immediately).
