1 head of garlic
1 cup of butter, room temperature
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Peel away the outer layers of the garlic head; however, don't peel the skins of the individual cloves. With a knife, cut off the top of the cloves--about1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top--so you can see the inside of the individual cloves.
Drizzle the top with olive oil then wrap the garlic head in tin foil. On a cookie sheet, bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the cloves feel soft.
Allow the garlic to cool. Separate the individual cloves from the head then pinch the end of the cloves so the garlic inside shoots out into a bowl.
Add butter to bowl. With the whisk attachment on your electric mixer, whisk the garlic and butter together until well combined and butter is light and airy.
