COOK’S TIP

To keep the butter in a round log shape versus having one side flatten by resting on the refrigerator shelf, try this trick. Cut the tube from an empty roll of paper towels crosswise into a 4-inch length. Make one lengthwise cut in the tube. Place plastic wrapped butter log in cardboard tube and refrigerate.
