Home Hints: Softening Butter


If on the spur of the moment, you
decide you want to make cookies but
the recipe calls for softened butter and
your butter is in the fridge, hard as a rock,
don't worry.  Take the butter out of its
wrapper and cut into 1/4" slices, arrange
on a plate as shown above and in no time,
the butter will be soft.  I have lights under
my cabinets and I place the plate below
them and find the butter softens even faster.

Now make cookies!
