A wonderful economical tasty alternative to buying the already made stuff. I bought salted butter on sale and made a few batches and froze some for later use. This is a keeper for me!

This was really good! The oil didn't change the taste of the butter at all. Thanks for sharing!

I no longer buy spreadable butter at the store because of this wonderful recipe. I use a hand mixer set on low to slowly blend the oil into the butter, which produces a nice, smooth product. My oil of choice is grapeseed, which doesn't compete with the flavor of the butter and adds some health benefits. Thanks so much for posting!

Excellent substitute for those expensive spreadable butters. For pancakes, waffles, etc. you can remove quantity desired of the spreadable butter and add cinnamon and/or honey to taste. Canola oil is listed as an ingredient on the spreadable butter I used to buy so I made this again, using the paddle attachment on Kitchen Aid, 1/2 cup butter whipped until smooth then added 1/4 cup canola oil gradually. Refrigerated in glass container with a lid until solidified. Turned out excellent.

I love this, I just got done making my second batch. This is so much cheaper than the spreadable butter that I have been buying in the store. I made the first batch with extra light olive oil and there was no olive flavor. The second batch I made with 80% olive oil and 20% flax seed oil for extra health benefits of omega-3s. Thanks for this great money saving recipe!
