What is to dot with butter?

If a recipe asks you to dot the top of something with butter, you are to take the amount of butter called for in the recipe and cut it up into small pieces (maybe 1/4) and scatter that across the top of the food. You can also use your hands to break apart the butter. Basically, try to distribute it over the food item so that it'll be evenly coated, and so the butter is on top if the part you want to brown nicely. If in doubt, you can melt the butter and carefully pour it over, though it may be hard to get it spread out and not all in big puddles.

What is the function of the butter in pastry?

Butter is what makes pastry "short" (or, "light and crumbly"). It also adds the characteristic "richness". In puff pastry and flaky pastry, butter is wholly responsible for the leavening effect.

When you think about it, a shortcrust pastry recipe, minus the butter is essentially the recipe for a water biscuit/cracker. Comparing these two things may help you see what difference butter has on a recipe.

Is melted butter and irreversible change?

Typically, yes. Butter is a mixture of fat and milk solids. Once melted the fats separate from the milk solids. 'Clarified' butter, or ghee, is the separated butter fat, often used in Indian cooking, as a canning sealer, or as a dip for steamed shellfish. Clarified butter, once separated from the milk solids, does not require refrigeration to keep it from going rancid, however, it must be kept cool to maintain its solidity.

Is melting butter a physical change or chemical change?

As you may know, determining whether a change is chemical or physical can sometimes be a real pain! This particular change is a hard one. If your talking about butter slightly melting on a hot day because it was left out on the counter, THAT is a physical change and is reversible by simply putting the butter into the fridge. However, melting butter on the stove and having it completely turn to liquid and turn a little brown, THAT is a chemical change and is hard to reverse... a chemical change has occurred while the butter was over the heat.
