You don't want the butter rock hard, but not mushy soft, either. A dough that is softer than the butter will stretch while the butter doesn't. f the butter is softer than the dough, it will be pushed out the sides. !ither suck to some degree. You may have to ad"ust chill#resting times for either dough or butter block so they are about the same. $itchen temp., how long it took to make the dough, fridge temp., all affect the consistency of the Butter Block % Dough. &igure out ad"ustments to make so they'll work together homogeneously. t may take a time or two, but you'll get the hang of it.
