Step 4 timing and butter consistency?

Hi, it would help to know approximate time step 4 takes and how big the butter pieces are when you stop? I’m used to the fully mixed idea- I think you’re saying let small chunks of butter remain separate/intact? Thanks. :)

Hi Kate! The timing really depends on your mixer, but the dough should be in shaggy pieces (not a cohesive ball), which hold together when squeezed. I focus more on the dough than the size of the butter chunks at this step. And when in doubt, I stop the mixer frequently to check in. Hope that helps!
