Are some butters oilyer than others?

Made some biscuits today, used Anchor butter and pre-cooking the mix was so greasy.
Think I usually use Mainland?

Wonder if it has something to do with the fat in the milk, and time of year. won't be oil. how did the baking turn out? That's the main thing!

Husband thinks they're pretty alright. :)
I've made better.

Can't say I've ever noticed that happening, maybe your mixture needed a bit more flour added

Sounds like you may have had a little too much butter to dry ingredients ratio.When they cooked did they spread quite a bit?

how warm was your butter if you nuked it ,it can look oily

if anything is added to food in nz it has to show on the side of the pack so read your butter paper and see if there is anything there

ask this in farming. it will be to do with cream

Chef_mothergoose_nz, Jun 25, 9:27 pm

some butter is just cream and salt, some has water included in the ingredients. I think Anchor is one of the cream & salt butters. but I don't know if that will make a difference or not. I know when making pastry I make sure I am using a butter that has no water added because it does make a difference to the end result.
