Butter Lamb for Easter

Make a lamb out of butter for your Easter table. You need 4 sticks of butter or margarine (softened) and a potato ricer (or a play dough thing that makes hair).


  1. Bend one stick like arc and place on a plate.

  2. Take 2/3 of a stick and bend a small piece over for the nose and push on the top to make an indent for the ears.

  3. Place all that on the left corner of the whole stick that is on the plate.

  4. With the leftover 1/3 cut into 4 legs.

  5. Now with the remaining 2 sticks you make "fur" by pushing the butter through the ricer and attach onto the body and part of the legs (don't cover the face or ears).

  6. Then use 2 cloves (or whole pepper) for eyes and parsley in the mouth.

I love that, too cute to eat. Cream cheese would make a cute white one. Thanks for sharing. Happy Easter!
