Bee Hive Butter

My friend who threw my baby shower made this adorable bee hive butter for the party. I have been making it ever sice. It is perfect for a Spring or Summer party! I made fresh biscuits and sliced ham and served it with this butter. It is SO yummy!

Makes 3 cups
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
1 pecan half
Garnishes: fresh rosemary, edible flower petals
Stir together butter, mustard and pecans (minus the pecan half)
Form butter mixture into a beehive shape. Smooth mound with a spatula or rounded knife. Form grooves around mound with tines of a fork. Insert pecan half near the base for a door; chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.
