Brown Sugar Brandy Butter

Brandy Butter is excellent not only with mince pies but also with the Light or Traditional Christmas Puddings or the Apple, Mincemeat and Nut Strudel.

You can either blend the butter and sugar together till pale, soft and creamy in a food processor or else use an electric hand whisk.

When you have a pale smooth mixture you can gradually add the brandy, a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Taste and add more brandy if you think it needs it! Then place the butter in a container and chill thoroughly before serving. It is important, I think, to serve this very cold so that it can provide a wonderful contrast to the hot mince pies or pudding.

It will keep for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator so it's not really worth freezing.
