Our family, including our beloved Grandma Lorraine, who famously told us that “there’s not much in life that can’t be made better with butter,” has made developing the perfect batch of butter our family legacy. This goal is more than 125 years in the making, a passion passed on from generation to generation, including our children, who make up generation six.

The end result is a line high butterfat butter in multiple, dreamy flavors, from sea salt butter to the garlic herb variety.

You can grab the rolled version of our butter — or the classic sticks you’ll often find on store shelves — from your local market or specialty store, by using our location tool.

So, without further ado, here’s our recipe for Cilantro Cowboy Butter:

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Servings: 20


  • 2 Sticks room temperature Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • Zest of 1/2 Lemon
  • 1/4 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Pink Himalayan Sea Salt


  1. Mix room-temperature butter with all other ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Continue to mix until everything is well combined.
  2. Grab a spatula and scrape down the sides of the bowl.  Carefully transfer the butter to a piece of parchment paper and form a butter log.

  4. Enjoy within 5 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
