Project Pinterest: Softening Butter Fast

The other day, I was all set to bake, and realized that the margarine that I needed for the recipe was all frozen.  I had stocked up at a sale, and forgotten to get a new box out of the freezer when the last stick was gone from the refrigerator.  Rats.  Now what?

Pinterest to the rescue!  That's what!

I remembered pinning this:



This worked perfectly!  Remember that I was using margarine (in a shiny metallic paper), so I removed that wrapper and wrapped it in waxed paper.  I rotated the margarine, and set the microwave to 4 seconds SEVERAL times, as I wasn't just trying to soften, but to THAW.  This was such a helpful tip!  Thanks to Erika @Musings From a Stay at Home Mom!!
