Happy Thursday!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away? Me neither!

 I have a fun little accompaniment for your Thanksgiving feast,

Turkey Butter, or more accurately, butter shaped like a turkey!

I spied this Keller’s Creamery Turkey Shaped Butter last year.

I wasn’t able to find it in my area but my sister found it and picked one up for our Thanksgiving feast.

Like all good hoarders I saved the mold to use this year. :)

After washing and drying the mold, I added softened butter, using an offset spatula to press it into the mold.

It was a bit of a messy process and I ended up starting over, doing one side first,

chilling it to firm up then the opposite side, pressing the sides together

before returning it to the fridge to set.

For easy removal, I placed it in the freezer for about 20 minutes before popping it out.

I used unsalted butter, but Keller’s Creamery Turkey Shaped Butter is salted,

better for those Thanksgiving dinner rolls and your mashed potatoes!

If you’re a turkey-butter-mold-hoarder or have a mold, you

could make a honey butter or any flavored compound butter!

I pardoned my turkey for one more week and didn’t cut into him

for this photos and returned him to the freezer. :)

    I buy this every year from Fresh Market. For Easter I buy the lamb and if I can’t find it I make it with a candy mold and a kit from Amazon. They also make a Christmas tree. I use Irish butter. Grandkids love it.

    This has nothing to do with butter. I just wanted to say you have the prettiest blog/website I have ever seen. Have a great day!!

    Guess I am going to the grocery store today for that turkey mold. It is so cute and will have to really start checking the butter section for other molds…who would have thought! 😀. Hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    I so love your table and food posts. This one is delightful. Why did I never think of buying that butter and reusing the mold??? Great idea! Now I’m off to check out your Thanksgiving recipes page. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    I’ve been making turkey butters in an old chocolate mold for years. The only problem is that my family hates to “decapitate” him!!! For a tasty spread for muffins or toast I chop a small handful of fresh cranberries in the food processor, add butter, a teaspoon of orange rind and some confectioner’s sugar. Then I fill the turkey mold with that. It’s really yummy. Happy Thanksgiving.

  12. November 18, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Im going to be looking for that Turkey butter, Mary. I’m a hoarder like you and I’d be saving that mold, too. Congratulations to the winners!! 🦃🦃🦃

    The turkey mold is so cute! Bravo to the very clever “hoarder”, I don’t know if I would have thought to save the mold, great idea! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  14. November 18, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Good for you for saving the mold. That turned out to be a great idea! Your butter looks perfect. I have leaf molds that I use to make butter for Thanksgiving, but your turkey kicks my leaves to the curb. Happy Thanksgiving, Mary!

  15. November 18, 2021 at 9:24 am

    How cute, and so smart to save the mold and reuse! Congrats to your lucky winners!

      What a fun addition to the festive holiday table! And you are so smart to save the mold and make your own! Tomorrow I will go to our Krogers and see if they have them in yet or if they are already sold out, ha! Thanks for listing the stores that carry this. I am also thinking it’s about time for me to make those wonderful pecan muffins, they are SO DELICIOUS! Yum and yum!

    And now I’m excited to do my shopping tomorrow! If I can’t find the butter, I’ll use a mold so thank you for the tips. What a fun addition to the holiday table. Who doesn’t love something easy, affordable, and charming for the holidays?!

    Gosh, that is such a cool idea, I love it! I need to look for a kit or a mould.

  22. November 18, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    I love that you reused the mold Mary-that’s so cool:@)

  23. November 18, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Very cute turkey mold. I did one a few years ago with a different turkey mold and also acorns. It makes Thanksgiving dinner very special. Almost too pretty to eat.

    Oh now I need to find a Turkey Mold! Maybe not this year… but I’ll definitely want one for next year!
    Thank you Mary for the Inspiration!
    And thank you for the Giveaway! Stay tuned!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Mary, I’m late arriving. What a fun addition for a Thanksgiving table. I’m going to check my grocery tomorrow. Last year I found tree shaped butter at Christmas. Clever to save the mold and make your own. I’m just this evening getting our Thanksgiving table set. Life seems to get in the way of my “play” time.
    Congratulations to each of the winners. I certainly am enjoying my plate you gifted me last November. I was lucky to find two Royal Stafford salad plates with the pheasant design at a local thrift. They set the tone for our table this year.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving this week. Will you be with your mother and sister?

    Mary, your creativity knows no end…very cool to upcycle that mold. Happy Thanksgiving from Asheville!

  28. November 24, 2021 at 11:28 am

    I so need this in my life! haha I started making my own butter as we switched to unpasturized farm milk and have been wanting a butter press. This would be sooooo CUTE

    We bought a turkey butter last week. I was shocked at the price $4.99, so smart of you to reuse turkey mold! Glad I saw this before I threw the mold away. Love your blog.
