½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
¼ cup minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon plus
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix well. Spoon the butter mixture into the center of a large sheet of wax paper, forming a log about 1½ inches in diameter. Fold the wrap over the butter and gently push in and under to form a smooth cylinder. Twist the ends to seal. Refrigerate until firm, about one hour.
Yields: ½ pound
