I can’t believe it’s not cheese

Ever have the baking bug hit you so fiercely you have to make something right away?  I have.  One of the issues I have when this happens is impatiently waiting for my butter to soften.  I’ve heard about and seen a couple of kitchen hacks to make the process go quicker.

You don’t have to wait long when the baking bug spontaneously hits you.  Has anyone else tried this?  Have other hacks to soften butter fast?
