The basic technique for making herb butter is simple. First cream the butter until it is light and fluffy. Then, add finely minced fresh herb leaves. You can pack the herb butter in candy molds, shape the chilled butter into little balls, use small cookie cutters to make shapes or roll the chilled butter into logs using a piece of waxed paper.
