    Don't have the one your looking for but i do have this cactus butter recipe.

    Prickly Pear Cactus Butter

    1 lb. unsalted butter
    2 each prickly pear cactus fruit
    or 1/2 c. of another fruit
    or berry of your choice, strawberries, or raspberries, etc.1 bunch cilantro, chopped
    1/2 c. honey
    Salt, to taste

    Let butter soften slightly in a mixing bowl or food processor. Peel and puree the cactus fruit; strain the juice through a fine strainer. Add: the juice, cilantro, honey and salt to the mixing bowl or food processor; blend until smooth and all is incorporated. Put into the refrigerator until it begins to stiffen. Lay out a small sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap and spread out some of the butter in a small strip. Roll up the paper or plastic like a cigar and twist the ends until it becomes a tight package. Freeze until hard and return to refrigerator to soften slightly for easy slicing.
