Possibly the simplest Christmas recipe but definitely the most un-healthy! 3 ingredients never tasted so good especially when eaten with a warm mince pie or Christmas pudd...
125g unsalted softened butter
125g icing sugar
2 tbsp boiling water
3 tbsp brandy
1) whip the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy
2) gently beat in the boiling water and brandy
3) refrigerate and repeat the process as brandy butter never lasts long if left un-attended.
