It seems like– out of the thin air– Sweet Baby became a Sweet Toddler.
How does this happen?
She moves fast, thinks quickly, and very decisively wants what she wants!
And one of the things she really wants is… BUTTER!
So, the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree, my friends. I unabashedly LOVE butter, and I’m not surprised in the least bit that Sweet Toddler does too. To me, butter is a food group; but, it can’t be just any ol’ butter. (I can taste the difference!) Grass-fed, (organic) butter is a nutritious superfood around our P Patch, and here we aren’t afraid of saturated fats and actually welcome them. And we aren’t the only ones to do so. Grass-fed butter is making a comeback!
At the recommendation of one of my favorite friends, I made some butter treats for Sweet Toddler. She loved them instantly! And this wasn’t no halfway-love either, this was a pine-for-you type, I can’t sleep kinda love. Dear Husband and I joked that Sweet Toddler loves her butter treats like a back-alley hooker loves crack. She’ll do anything for them!
SHE WILL EVEN LET ME SUCK OUT HER NOSTRILS WITH THE COMFY NOSE WITHOUT A FIGHT!
(If any of you have a toddler with a stuffy/runny nose, you know what I’m talking about. This was the stuff that revolutions are made of).
(Fancied-Up Frozen Butter Dollops)
- 2 sticks chilled grass-fed butter, preferably organic
- 2-3 Tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract
- 3-4 Tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup
In a food processor, combine all ingredients and whip. It is important to note that the butter is chilled and I used mine straight from the fridge. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, transfer into a piping bag, (or a plastic bag with the corner cut off), and press out small little dollops of the mixture onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Place in the freezer for aproximately 10 minutes or until the mixture has set. Store your butter treats in a mason jar in the freezer and enjoy them directly from there. They melt in your mouth!
