This is such a simple idea that I can't believe I've never done this before! I saw this over on Gourmet Mom on the Go and decided to try it for Tadd's family Christmas. I used pesto, but you can use anything (honey, rosemary, chili powder and lime juice, etc). These looks so fancy, but they are so easy! Try it for your holiday meal this week!
adaped from Gourmet Mom-on-theGo
½ c (one stick) butter, softened
1-2 Tbsp pesto
Mix all ingredients with electric mixer until blended.
Spoon into a pastry bag with a large star tip (I use the Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator) or spoon into a ziploc, bagsnip an end off, and you can pipe out small circles or shapes.
Pipe out flowers onto wax paper, return to fridge to harden. Remove just before serving and set on individual plates or a serving platter.
