    1. Cube the chilled butter about a half hour before starting, so that it is almost room temperature
    2. Beat the butter for 1 minute. Add the sugar and beat together until pale and fluffy. Add the brandy a teaspoon at a time, beating constantly.
    3. Spoon the brandy butter into a serving bowl and chill. Cover with cling film if not serving the same day.


    Use icing sugar or caster sugar instead for a lighter colour.

    Really nice! I added the zest from one orange at the end and you could really taste it. Melted beautifully on my mince pies. Thanks for the recipe!  -  10 Dec 2014
