Update on my fantastic butter and what to do with Panela Redonda?

So, I figured if you could put a dab of butter on a steak, why not a high-end hamburger?

Made organic burgers tonight with my families 'secret' seasoning: onion and garlic powder, salt, pepper, sugar (best burgers in the world, btw). Anyway, I took my high end butter and put a little dab on top and let it melt before putting it on the lightly seared bun.

My husband and I both ate them with nothing else (I think that's a first for me). What an AMAZINg burger!!! I'm going to try to make some brioche this weekend, too and maybe some shortbread cookies. Sigh....buttery goodness.

OK, so Panela Redonda - I found it today in my grocery store. It says "100% Brown Sugar" but it's actually solidified cane juice. Seriously solidified into a one pound if I threw this at you it would REALLY hurt. I could easily break a window. Anyway...what the heck do I do with it?

Thanks for all the butter ideas. I'm stowing them away.
