- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cup cold butter
- 1/2 cup ice cold water
- 1 egg, beaten for egg wash
Step 1: In a mixing blow, whisk together flour & salt.
Step 2: Add butter and coat it with the flour. Start stirring the butter with the flour and pressing gently until it is combined. For this you can also use a butter cutter.
Step 3: Once you have a mixture that resembles breadcrumbs add ice cold water.
Step 4: Stir with a fork and then continue stirring with a spatula until the dough comes together.
Step 5: Dust the kitchen surface with four and place the dough on the flour. Knead a few times until it comes together.
Step 6: Shape the dough into a square and roll out to a rectangle, about 7×12 inches long. Bring the edges toward the center and fold over each other.
Step 7: Roll the dough again in the rectangle and bring the edges together again. Repeat rolling and folding the dough for another 5-6 times.
Step 8: Wrap the dough and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Step 9: To bake, roll the dough into a 1/4-inch thick square. Cut the dough into squares.
Step 10: Brush each square with egg wash and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F. Serve as desired.
