  1. Allow butter to come to room temperature & soften.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  3. Combine softened butter, saffron, garlic, paprika, lemon zest & salt. Mix until well combined.
  4. Place pipis in a baking dish large enough to ensure they don’t overlap. This is important to make sure the pipis cook evenly. Place a good spoonful of the saffron butter over the pipis and place the lid on top of the baking dish.
  5. Put baking dish into the hot oven for approximately 8 minutes or until just cooked through.
  6. Serve with a wedge of lemon and a chunk of good sourdough to soak it all up.
