How to Make Cooking Essentials: Beurre Manie (Kneaded Butter)
- Flour is often used as a thickening agent in cooking but just adding flour to a soup would cause large doughy lumps. The flour wouldn't spread easily and it would make the dish unappealing. Roux and beurree mains are both used to thicken soups without the flour clumping. With the butter coating the flour you can add it to your soup or sauce without the flour getting thick and clumpy. As the butter melts it distributes the flour evenly as you stir it into your mixture.
