I believe with each cookie and brownie I bake that there is an even amount of butter and sugar mixed in as there is love.

step 1

step 3
Break down butter until it resembles coarse meal and the largest bits are the size of small peas. The butter should still be cold once you have reached the coarse meal stage. Rechill the mixture for about 10 minutes in the freezer. If it becomes too soft while doing this, stick everything in freezer for 10 to 15 minutes and then begin again. You can do this multiple times without any harm.
