all purpose flour
butter - must be 80% fat
cold, cut into cubes
In a large mixing bowl put the flour and salt then whisk to combine.
Add the cold cubed butter (1 x 1 inch) then mix by hand or stand mixer until all the butter is combined with the flour.
Pour water gradually while mixing until you form a dough.
If the butter is getting warm and soft, wrap in cling film and let chill for 20-30 minutes in the fridge. If not, continue with the next step.
Unwrap the dough, dust the work surface with flour, and roll the dough into a rough rectangle shape (17x9 cm.). Fold the dough in thirds, like a letter. Turn 90 degrees, roll and fold again.
Wrap in cling film and let chill for 20-30 minutes in the fridge.
Repeat folding step about 2 to 5 times, wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
Remember to keep dough cold all the time while working on it. If butter is getting warm and soft, chill in the fridge.
