If you’ve ever wondered how to bring butter and eggs to room temperature, the easiest and best way is to simply allow them to sit – at room temperature. That’s pretty much a no-brainer, right?

But this method usually means that you have a bit of a plan in place. If I know that I am going to be baking a batch of M&M Cookies or my Easy Sugar Cookies recipe early in the morning, I always take my items out of the fridge and allow them to sit on the counter overnight.
