Servings: 2 cupsPrep Time: 10 mins.
1 cup (two sticks) of butter
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
Soften butter to room temperature in a small, deep-sided bowl. Add oil and 1/4 cup milk or buttermilk.
Place small bowl inside larger bowl half filled with ice. Whip with hand-held beater until smooth and spreadable, adding more milk if necessary. Scrape beaters and bowl, often.
This is a good spread to use on Italian bread before warming in the oven. I often add chopped garlic and chives. Fruit, honey or cinnamon and sugar can also be added to make a sweet spread.
