Combine all ingredients in a small bowl with black pepper to taste. Beat lightly with a fork. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes and up to 2 hours to let the flavors meld. Chill in refrigerator until firm. Butter can be covered tightly and refrigerated for up to a week. Slice pats of chilled butter and serve over dishes as desired.
