Butter: How to Soften it Quickly

Submitted by susan

If you need butter at room temperature for a recipe but forgot to set it out to soften in advance, try this: Cut the butter into chunks and arrange in a single layer on a plate. Fill a measuring cup or bowl large enough to completely cover the butter with water and heat to boiling in the microwave; carefully discard the hot water and invert the now-warm cup or bowl over the butter. It'll soften in just a few minutes.
