American Cafe's Chive Butter

Many many people have tried to create this chive butter, including myself & there are so many rumors flying around about what all is in this spread.  But I am here to set the record straight, it's not Boursin cheese, it's not cream cheese, it's SOUR CREAM mixed in with the butter!!  After eating out on Sunday at American Cafe, we were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.  I did not ask anyone for this information, it was merely passed on to us by an American Cafe' employee.  He didn't know that I was a food blogger or that I would go home & make it & nail it!  But here it is & it's been tested & family approved.  And I am so excited that we can finally make this at home & you can share this with your family too.  

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons dried chives
1/4 cup sour cream, room temperature
1 large garlic clove grated
1/2 tsp salt

Place butter in mixing bowl & beat on high for 1 minute.  Add chives & sour cream & mix on medium til til incorporated.  Finally add garlic & salt.  Serve immediately or place in refrigerator.  Be sure & serve at room temperature.

Makes 3/4 cup
