There are things in life that are terrible. Like pirates, taxes and hay fever. There are things in life that are good. Like saving money, hot tubs and Dodgers baseball. And there are things in life that are truly wonderful. Like family, friendship and whipped, spreadable butter. Sometimes it takes a little terrible to help you realize all of the wonderful that surrounds you.
In celebration of the wonderful surrounding us, Betty’s Spreadin’ the Love to fellow food bloggers and sharing a new recipe for Incredible Spreadable Butter that not only spreads wonderfully, but is less expensive and lower in saturated fat than regular butter!

WHAT’S BETTY BEEN UP TO?
Big thanks to Sarah Spitz of KCRW for making it possible to see the Bird and the Bee live in studio at KCRW on Morning Becomes Eclectic with Jason Bentley! It was an unforgettable morning touring the station and watching an amazing performance! Thank you, Inara and Greg, for signing CDs and taking photos. You are too sweet!
And if you listen or watch the live performance, you can hear Jason Bentley talking about the cookies that Betty brought to the studio (and, among many amazing originals, an awesome performance of Hall & Oates’ “Sara Smile”). Betty had plenty of peanut butter-marshmallow Holiday Disco Cookies and customized KCRW Sugar Cookies to share with the wonderful people of KCRW and the Bird and the Bee. The coconut covered “C” sugar cookies seemed to be the crowd favorite!
AVERAGE BETTY SIGHTINGS
MI Lie from Singapore made these beautiful Sugar Cookies for her friend’s birthday! What a wonderful birthday treat! MI Lie had some great questions about the consistency of the icing and Betty was able to get right back to her with answers because she asked in the comment section :) Your cookies look darling, MI Lie! Thank you so much for sending the photo!
How about you? Have you tried one of Betty’s recipes? Send Betty a photo and she’ll post it!
