A cheesy spread on fresh summer corn may seem like gilding the lily, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Enjoy leftover cheddar butter on biscuits.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add corn, and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, cheese, and a pinch of pepper.
Serve corn immediately, with cheddar butter on the side (and a knife for spreading).
