QI would like some easy spring dessert recipes for company using Land O Lakes® Butter. I love the taste of Land O Lakes.

Thank you, Sharon, for the compliment. I truly love the flavor of our butter, too, and feel so fortunate to have a job developing recipes to share it with people like you. One of my favorite things about Land O Lakes® Butter is how it makes baked goods rich and tender. And I especially love the way it complements the bright, citrusy flavors of spring.

When I bake for company, I don't feel like I need to go over-the-top or create intricate works of pastry art. I usually like to just let simple flavors shine, like they do in this Glazed Lemon Pound Cake. A classic pound cake was made with a pound of butter, a pound of sugar a pound of eggs and pound of flour. That is a very rich cake! Modern recipes like ours go a little lighter on the eggs and butter, but without sacrificing any flavor at all.

Another spring-y, buttery dessert I love is a big batch of Key Lime Bars. Like the pound cake, they've got a citrusy zing to them that goes so well with our butter. Key limes are smaller and have a stronger flavor than the usual varieties of grocery store limes. If you can't find them or want to save yourself the trouble of juicing several tiny little limes, you can usually find bottle key lime juice in your grocery store.

If you want to add a bright, pretty touch to your spring baked goods, definitely try our Polka Dot Cupcakes. It's easy to make the fun polka dot pattern on top to impress your guests. And, of course, we fill them with a tangy cream cheese and lime filling, because we just can't get enough of those bright spring flavors.

Happy spring!

Becky: My husband and I just loved the Savory Butter Olive Oil Saute Express.... We can not find it any longer in the stores or on your web site... I was by far the best product you had in The Saute Express products... Why in the world did you stop the best product that you had? Very disappointed in Easley, SC...
