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!!


  1. Great idea! It's the little things in life that makes things so much easier!

  2. I've done this one from Pinterest too!!!! lol Isn't it great? As a matter of fact, I've used it several times now! I love not having to worry anymore about the butter being soft enough! Thanks so much for joing up over at Project Pinterest, you're a doll!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
