Butter. Tips to soften butter

If you are making any recipe that calls for softened butter, try one of the following.

  • Heating the butter in the microwave for 5 seconds will soften butter, However this is a bit of a trial and error method and if you are a few seconds too ling you just end up with a pool of butter.

  • Using stick butter, grate it on your cheese grater. This cuts up the butter so small that it will be soft and your dish will be great.

Good, but better Comments By: Michelle B, Phx on 2007-12-05
I did 5 seconds, then 5 more seconds, then did 10 seconds, and it came out perfectly. No waiting around 1-2 hours for room temp. Thanks so much!!!
