Rubbing in Butter and Flour

Rubbing butter into flour can be done in a few easy steps:

  1. Take the butter and cut it into cubes. Your recipe will tell you whether the butter needs to be cold or at room temperature.
  2. Put the cubes of butter into the flour and using your fingers, rub the mixture together until you get a consistency which looks a bit like breadcrumbs.
  3. Keep going until all your mixture looks the same.
