Cranberry Lemon Butter

I created this butter almost 8 years ago to smear on top of hot rolls. It became an immediate family favorite and a definite tradition. Since then, I have upscaled the recipe by adding creamy Mascarpone. This is delicious on anything and you will soon find that you cannot have a holiday without it. You can even use it as icing by adding 1 cup of powder sugar.
