Have you ever been frustrated by trying to cut butter for pastry or biscuits? Have you wished for individual little squares, only to make smooshed-together pieces? Here’s my method for getting separated squares quickly every time.
1) Start with cold butter. Cut it into thirds (more if you want smaller pieces) lengthwise, keeping the pieces separated.
2) Turn the pieces on their sides and cut in half (more if you want smaller pieces). Separate and lay out on your cutting board.
3) Keeping the pieces separate, cut the butter crosswise, resulting in little squares.
4) Keep the little pieces separate on your cutting board, and you’re done!
