This recipe is a good one if you remember to reword it slightly, the instruction referred to as 'contradictory' is a simple misprint/typo. The instruction should be to put the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the butter til it resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar. This recipe appears elsewhere, this is how I know; I've just made a batch - lovely.

Recipe instructions are contradictory. First the sugar is rubbed into the butter. Then later (after the sugar has been added) we are told to add sugar!
CDKitchen Note: I think the submitter of the recipe meant to say salt (mix the salt with the flour)
