For Herbed Butter:
Or, 3 tablespoons of your favorite herbs
For Vanilla-Cinnamon Butter:
split lengthwise, seeds scraped out and added to the butter, pod discarded
Place the softened butter in a medium bowl, cut into pieces and add a pinch of salt.
Add your herbs or flavorings and use a rubber spatula to fold and mix until the add-ins are completely incorporated and evenly distributed throughout the butter.
Transfer the butter to a piece of plastic wrap. Shape and roll it into a log about 6 inches in length. Twist the plastic wrap at the ends to seal. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld. (Alternatively, you can transfer the butter to a small bowl or ramekin and cover with plastic wrap.)
