Garlic Scape Butter

My mom got summer veggies at Siena Farms in Sudbury and these green curly stems in particular caught my eye. I bit into one of them thinking it was a green bean, but denied! Instead, the flavor was garlicky and intense; in fact scapes are the curly stems that hard-necked garlic shoots up. Hence, I present you with a delicious compound butter. Butter tastes good on almost anything, but fresh garlicky scapes enhance the butter that you’ll want to put on everything!

The ouzo infused dough doesn’t hurt the cause. And once you smother warm honey syrup, nuts, & cinnamon over the hot fluffy dough, you’ll…
