How to soften butter to room temp when your house is kept cool?

saintp | Dec 15, 2011 05:05 AM

Hi! So, I am preparing to bake some cookies this afternoon and the recipe calls for 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened, which I take to mean room temp. Well, we keep our house at about 64 degrees when home, cooler when we're out. The last time I left butter on the counter for over a day, it was barely "softened"and creaming it with sugar was not so easy. Any suggestions? (We don't have a microwave).
Thanks!
