Softening Butter

After taking a baking course, I learned that when a recipe calls for softened butter, that is what the recipe needs. Not cold butter but also not melted butter! The problem is how to get softened butter quicker after removing it from the refridge.

I was told to place the stick of butter into a plastic sandwich bag and either hit it gently and repeatedly with a wooden spatula or curved part of a spoon (which shouldn't rip the bag) OR to knead it while it's in the bag until softened.
Great job for kids and others offering to help, while you continue on with your recipe creation.

Once the butter is removed, turn the bag inside out and place your hand inside and use the slightly buttery bag to oil your pan. Neat and easy!
