Author Notes

As any fan of The Great British Bake-Off knows, there’s a delicate balance when it comes to adding floral flavors to baked goods. But me? I like my sweets extra flowery, and I’m 99.9 percent sure that Paul Hollywood will never taste one of my creations. In this recipe, delicate rose water meets freeze-dried raspberries and a pinch of salt for a semi-sweet butter that’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, and even dessert. To serve, I like to smear it on a scone, spread it on a fresh croissant, or slather it on a muffin. And because no brunch would be complete without something to sip, I pair all of this with Bread & Butter’s red berry-forward California Rosé and perfectly sparkling DOC Italian Prosecco to amp up the crisp, fruity notes in the butter. —Madison Trapkin

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried raspberries, plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rose water
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of flaky sea salt, for serving
  • Croissants, scones, or muffins, for serving
  1. Add butter, freeze-dried raspberries, honey, rose water, and kosher salt to a food processor. Blend until smooth and free of large butter or raspberry chunks, about 15 seconds.
  2. Using a spatula, transfer the raspberry-rose butter to a small bowl. Transfer to the refrigerator (no need to cover) and chill for about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from the fridge, sprinkle with hand-crushed freeze-dried raspberries and a pinch of flaky sea salt. To serve, spread butter on croissants, scones, or muffins along with a glass of Bread & Butter California Rosé or Bread & Butter DOC Italian Prosecco.
