  1. These flavored butter recipes start with half a cup of softened butter. You can create different flavors in your butter by mixing in different herbs and spices. Once you have the basic recipe down, try other combinations. These butters are simple to make; just mix the ingredients in a small bowl and beat the mixture until it's fluffy. If you don't use all of it, roll the rest into a log shape and refrigerate or freeze it.
