Uploaded by expertvillage on 02.02.2008

Hey guys my name is J and I'm talking to you on behalf of Expert Village. On this clip
I'm going to show you guys how to add the butter to our little strudel mixture that
we are mixing here. This is going to be for the top of our pumpkin pie mix. We want two
tablespoons of butter. My butter here has a measurements on it. So you want to cut that
at two tablespoons. Basically guys what you want to do with this is break it up to little
pieces and add it to the brown sugar. You want this to be nice and cold, nice and chilled,
right out of the fridge. The reason why you want it right out of the fridge cause we are
going to mix it with this. It is going to make the mixture nice and crumbly. All that
stuff is going to stick to the top of the butter. It is going to make little bitty balls
of butter and brown sugar, flour. It is going to make a nice little topping for our mix
here. Once you have the butter in there, you just want to incorporate the butter with your
spoon. Chop it down. You can get in there with your hands if you like and work it all
together. We are going to make a nice little crumbly mixture. This is what you want the
mixture to look like guys. You can see there. You want it to be a nice little crumbly mixture
of butter. This is kind of like a rue. Actually, since we have flour in there, flour and butter
makes rue. It is going to make a nice little sweet rue on top of the pumpkin pie mix. The
next clip I'm going to show you guys how to crush and add the pecans.
