Recipe by Mrs B
In the UK it's almost compulsory to serve Brandy Butter as an accompaniment to mince pies and Christmas pudding. This recipe was included in a Sainsbury's magazine Christmas supplement (December 1998), but don't just wait for Christmas; this is lovely at any time of year, especially with hot or cold apple pies and fruit crumbles. Go on, treat yourself! Recipe Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.
