Tuesday's Tip: How soft is Softened Butter?

To achieve that just-right stage, leave the butter in a cool, shaded spot on the kitchen counter for about two hours.  Test the softness by pressing the butter with your finger.  If the indention shows and the butter holds its shape, it’s perfect.  If you forget to set out the butter and have to use the microwave, be very careful.  Use the lowest power level for 10 second intervals.  Overly soft or melted butter will not work properly in recipes.
