Ingredients

  • 375 grams all purpose flour
  • 300 grams butter - must be 80% fat cold, cut into cubes
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup cold water

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Remember to keep dough cold all the time while working on it. If butter is getting warm and soft, chill in the fridge.
