A Lurpak bake off!

Lurpak have recently launched their new Lurpak Slow churned butter, which is inspired by traditional production methods.  It is made by slowly churning cream over five hours in small batches.  Lurpak claims this results in a fuller tasting flavour, well we had to put this to the test!

Lurpak Slow churned butter

The girls and I made two batches of cookies, well I can't think of anything better really.  Once batch used Lurpak slow churned and the other used a supermarket own brand butter.  We followed the following recipe, after I managed to convince my daughter it was a bowl and not a hat!

hat or bowl?

After the cookies had cooled down it was time to put them to the taste test.  Each batch was placed on a different plate and sure enough one plate disappeared much faster than the other
