How to soften butter in a jiffy!

Monday, July 18, 2016

Fancy a nifty butter tip I've just learnt?

Next time you’re about to bake cookies using a recipe that requires softish butter - that you obviously forgot to soften - just grab a thicker glass (like Pyrex), fill it up with water and microwave it. Pour out the water and place the glass over your cold stick of butter. By the time you mix all the dry ingredients, your butter will be soft enough to use.

P.S: Also, this avocado ripening tip.
P.P.S: Plusa few more genius tricks you might like.
