Butter at Room Temperature

This is another important ingredient , if your butter is warm or too cold, it will not be creamy when you mix it with sugars. So your butter needs to be at room temperature so it can be whisked easily. But not to warm that it turns into greasy mixture when mixed with sugar. It should be creamy. The butter at cold room temperature will also rise well. So, If you keep butter on the counter around 30-45 minutes in advance. It works best. In other case, just heat butter in microwave for 15 seconds. And rest it for few minutes before you begin. You can replace butter for margarine. (I've tried it so I know you can make cookies with margarine but use butter for best taste and texture.)
