Seasoning Blends & Mixes


    Dolly Madison's Fairy Butter

    Dolly brought this to the White House. It was that extra touch that she loved and popular with other Virginia cooks as well.

    2 hard boiled eggs
    1 tablespoon orange flower water
    1 tablespoon powdered sugar
    Butter, room temperature

    Beat and mash the egg yolks until fine grained. Add orange flower water and powdered sugar; beat until you have a fine paste, mixing well. Combine with equal amounts of butter and force through a fine strainer, with holes, onto a fancy plate.
