unsalted butter, softened
toasted chopped pecans

- Sauté shallots in one tablespoon of the butter until caramelized and almost crisp, and allow to cool.
- Fold all ingredients together and chill.
- When almost firm, place flavored butter onto wax paper and roll into a log.
- Seal in plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze until needed (can cut off portions of the roll and keep the rest frozen).
- Let butter soften before using for best flavor.
