Warm breakfast breads are already delicious, but they can be made a special occasion with this Grand Marnier Butter. Using the signature liquor, the butter takes on the flavors of bitter orange, balanced by cognac notes of hazelnuts and toffee. Adding a little sugar cuts the edge of the bitter, and the fresh orange juice brightens the creaminess of the butter. The combination is one that will leave you wanting more.
- 1 Stick of Butter, room temperature (1/2 cup)
- 2 tbsp Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge (orange liquor)
- 3 tbsp freshly squeezed Orange Juice
- Zest of one large Orange
- 2 tbsp white Sugar
Add the butter, orange zest and sugar to a food processor and mix together until creamy. With the processor on it’s lowest setting, slowly pour in the Grand Marnier and fresh squeezed orange juice. Continue to pulse until all the liquid is absorbed into the butter.
For serving, either store in a covered ramekin or spread the butter on a plastic wrap and roll up into a a cylinder log. If you make a log, you’ll want to chill it so you can cut discs for serving. Enjoy with warm breakfast breads!
