Butter Lamb Mold

Butter lambs are an old European tradition. They were set out on the table for Easter dinner to remind the family of the Savior’s sacrifice and the real meaning of Easter.

Teri’s Gramma’s Polish butcher shop always sold butter lambs with peppercorn eyes and a little piece of red curling ribbon wrapped around its neck. This lamb is ready for Easter Sunday, when it will be set out in the center of the table as a reminder of the Lamb of God, the Savior, and His sacrifice for us.

Butter lamb mold. An old European tradition, butter lambs are placed on the table for Easter dinner to remind the family of the Savior’s sacrifice and the real meaning of Easter. Fill the two halves of the mold with 1/4 lb. room temperature butter, push the two halves together and place in the freezer until solid. Butter lamb mold measures 4 in. by 4.75 in. Finished lamb measures 3 in. long by 2.75 in. tall by 1 in. deep. The mold is made of plastic. Unlike molds made of metal or porcelain, it flexes and bends to allow the butter lamb to be removed easily.
