  • You can use salted and unsalted butter interchangeably in a recipe. Unsalted butter has all the benefits of salted butter without the added salt, giving you control of the overall salt addition in a recipe. 

  • It's best to soften butter at room temperature for 30 minutes; also, cutting butter into smaller pieces will speed up the softening. We don't recommend softening butter before using it for baking (it often gets too soft and affect the recipe's success) if you do choose to use the microwave, use the defrost setting (30% power). Check butter every 5 seconds so that it does not over-soften or melt.
