This is meant to be a brief overview of this great recipe. For step-by-step instructions and a full printable recipe card with ingredients, please scroll down to the teal box below or Jump to Recipe.
Here's how to make butter rosettes:
- Start with room temperature butter.
- Transfer the butter to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
- Hold the piping bag vertical.
- Onto a small serving dish or parchment paper lined baking tray, squeeze the butter out into a dollop that's about 1-2 inches wide.
For a fancier butter rosette, follow these steps:
- Hold the bag straight up and down.
- Pipe a small dollop of butter.
- Then continue piping the dough in a circle around the center to create the rosette.
(This is similar to the way that you make buttercream rosettes.)
I have seen some people use their cookie press to make rosette butter in all sorts of shapes, but I haven't tried it myself.
✏️ Make Ahead
To make butter rosettes ahead of time, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pipe the rosettes using a star tip. Refridgerate until ready to use.
To Store: Butter rosettes should be refrigerated until you're ready to serve them. For best results, allow them to harden for 1 hour, then gently transfer them to an airtight container. (These are my favorite airtight containers.)

✔️ Butters with large pieces of herbs or other ingredients are more difficult to pipe than fancy butter that has a smoother consistency.
✔️ Allow the butter to come to room temperature before handling. Do not attempt to melt the butter.
✔️ Star tips with a large opening are best. Extra large piping tips will also work if you're looking for a different shape.
