Originally published July 2013.
Our house is often the destination for a great brunch with family and friends. It has become a bit of a tradition.
About half the time we have guests on a Sunday, we serve a great brunch which everyone seems to enjoy. Let’s just say invitations are rarely of ever refused.
It makes a very welcome change from having guests for Sunday dinner, and can be less work too. That is, of course, with good menu planning and prep work.
The newest addition to our traditional Sunday Brunch is this amazing sweet butter to spread on warm buttermilk biscuits. No joke, this is sensational stuff! Destined to be a new family favorite.

Only butter is butter!
I use unsalted butter and add a tiny pinch of salt or you can use 1/2 salted and 1/2 unsalted butter. Of course you can use all salted or all unsalted if you prefer.
But remember, only butter is butter! Margarine or tubs of spreadable butter substitutes WILL NOT do.
In fact many will turn into a watery mess if you even attempt to use it in this recipe. I’ve never gone wrong with sticking to only real dairy butter in my cooking and baking.
Trust me, when you have warm biscuits on the table along with this compound butter something magic happens. When your guests start slathering on this butter to, melt into the warm, soft biscuits everyone will practically swoon.
It is just pure comfort food heaven.
For interesting variations, try using different seasonal citrus options like tangerines, satsumas or tangelos. Clementines are nice at the Holidays too.
