Should the butter be cold so that it can be cut in to the other ingredients?

Hi Maryeileen. I've always cut the butter in to 'pats' straight from the fridge and by the time I have everything else set up and ready to go, the butter has softened enough to mix, no need to cut in. It just makes it easier to have 'pats' to drop in rather than one large lump of butter. :-)
