If you are the kind of person who could be described as 'Pinteresty' and enjoys putting flowers in food, this homemade compound butter will be right up your alley. Created by Gina Matsoukas from the food blog Running to the Kitchen, the Blueberry Lavender Honey Butter recipe is a mixture that can be used to enhance flavor in other dishes, like scones, biscuits, cookies, crostinis and more.

Made from scratch using a stand mixer, the compound butter is for people who like the idea of pioneers and hand-churned butter, but also know technology and modern appliances have their place. Using fresh blueberries, lavender, honey, sea salt and cold heavy cream you can recreate this recipe at home. It also makes a thoughtful gift.
