He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

Qiuick Room Temperature Butter

Have you ever been in the mood for chocolate chip cookies but only had frozen butter to work with? If you're impulsive and impatient, like me, this actually happens a lot! Ideally to thaw your butter you would put it in the fridge for 6 to 7 hours or on the counter for 3 to 4 hours. 
Thankfully, I'll have learned a couple of tips to shorten the waiting time and get those cookies in my tummy faster. 
a. cut the sticks up butter into tablespoon size chunks and put them on a plate or in a wide based bowl on the counter for 30 minutes
b. unwrap the stick and stand it up on end rather than on it's side 
c. beat the butter with a hand mixer until it softens
d. grate the butter with a box grater
e. DON'T leave it next to an open window when it's cold outside {this most definitely slows the process}
f. place stick of butter in between two sheets of wax paper and, using your palm, knead and work the butter until it's soft
