starry, starry night Cut your butter into 1cm-thick slabs. Dip small cookie cutters in hot water and use to cut out shapes. You can buy different-shaped cookie cutters in all sorts of sizes and tailor-make your own portions. Place on serving trays, cover with plastic wrap so the butter doesn’t take on any fridge odours and refrigerate until ready to serve. Remember to bring out the butter 10 minutes before serving so it’s a good spreading temperature.
