How to make deep-fried butter

Here are the ingredients:
1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons cream cheese

3 tablespoons berry jam (flavor of choice)

Cream butter, sugar, cream cheese and jam together with an electric mixer until smooth. Using a melon baller, form 1-inch balls of butter mixture and arrange them on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Freeze until solid, at least two hours.

Then you need to make batter (see the link), after which -

Working with frozen butter balls, skewer frozen balls one at a time and dip in batter. Place battered butter ball in hot oil and remove skewer, using a second skewer to dislodge. Fry for 30 to 45 seconds and turn with slotted spoon. Allow battered butter to fry for an additional 30 to 45 seconds or until lightly browned.

Remove fried butter balls from oil with slotted spoon and cool on a rack for at least 1 minute. (I know it will be hard to wait.) Skewer and eat, State-Fair style. Careful, contents of fried butter will remain hot.

Full details at the Dallas Morning News (note this is a newspaper link and will probably be ephemeral, so if you want the info, read the link rather than bookmark for future reference).


  1. I have to disagree with the last commenter. You obviously just do not have the intestinal fortitude to consume the various delicacies of the Texas culture. To wit: Deep Fried Texas Butter Balls

    Go home, eat some veggies and call me when you don't drop dead from coronary infarction. Then we'll talk.
