    It works! Baking Tip: Softening Butter - Put your stick of butter with the wrapper still on in the microwave. Heat for 4 seconds on high. Flip it to the next side and heat for 4 more seconds. Do this for each side for a total of 16 seconds. This may vary ever-so-slightly depending on your microwave power. The result will be a slightly squishable stick of butter that is softened just right!
