Blend all ingredients with wooden spoon until creamy. Chill for at least half an hour. Using a pastry bag and decorative tips, pipe butter onto roasted squash or corn on the cob. Or, transfer to waxed paper and shape into a log before chilling, and simply slice into pats.
Squash also pairs well with quieter flavors: nuts, sautéed shallots, subtle amounts of sage or maple syrup, etc.
