    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Turn your oven to 300°F to heat up. Grease the inside of the pan with butter on a paper towel.
    2. 2
      Put a strainer over a large mixing bowl and pour the flour into it. Shake the flour into the bowl.
    3. 3
      Cut the butter into small pieces and put them into a bowl. Mix them with a blunt knife to coat them with flour.
    4. 4
      Rub the pieces of butter between your fingertips. Lift the mixture and let it fall back into the bowl as you rub.
    5. 5
      Continue rubbing in the flour until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar with a wooden spoon.
    6. 6
      Holding the bowl in one hand, squeeze the mixture into a ball. The heat from your hand makes the mixture stick together.
    7. 7
      Press the mixture into the pan with your fingers, then use a spoon to smooth the top and make it level.
    8. 8
      Use prongs of a fork to press a pattern around the edge. Then cut the mixture into eight pieces.
    9. 9
      Bake for 30 minutes until it is golden brown. Leave the bread for 5 minutes Before putting it on a wire rack.
