Creamed honey gives this butter an extra-smooth texture and creates the prettiest swirl.

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 10 minutes



In bowl, beat butter with 1 tbsp of the honey until fluffy; beat in orange zest and cardamom. Spoon half of the butter mixture into serving dish; drop half of the remaining honey by spoonfuls over top. Repeat with remaining butter mixture and honey. Using skewer or tip of knife, swirl honey into butter mixture, smoothing top. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week; bring to room temperature before using.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Apply only gentle pressure when grating the orange zest, otherwise you'll get too much of the bitter pith.

Makes about 1 cup.
