Just the Facts : When a recipe calls for cold butter: Dice the butter, then freeze 10 to 15 minutes. If it calls for room-temperature or softened butter: Cut the butter into pieces; let sit a room temperature at least 30 minutes. If you are short on time, microwave 1 stick at 10 percent power until pliable but not melted, about 1 minute, checking often.
Homemade Coconut Butter - I love coconut butter. You will notice that in many of my recipes, I use coconut butter instead of coconut oil. Why? Because it has a richer flavor and a better texture than coconut oil. But coconut butter is both expensive and hard for some people to find. The solution? Make your own. http://papasteves.com/blogs/news/11304001-fiber-protein-fat-satiety-feel-fuller-longer-slow-down-sugar-absorption
