You might already have a brand of butter you love, but you might also be wondering about the best ones available at the supermarket.

It makes all the difference in a recipe like Ladd's favorite: The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake Ever. When Ree first followed her mother-in-law's recipe, it was a happy accident.

Whether you're impressing your crowd with a trendy butter board, grilling up a garlic butter steak, rolling out a classic all-butter piecrust for your best pies, or trying out a ooey gooey butter cake recipe for the first time, you're going to need some high-quality butter as your main ingredient!
