  • 1 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cup Flour
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • ½  tsp Salt
  • 8 tbsp Cold Water


  • Place butter in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt.
  • Grate the frozen butter into the flour. (Dice the remaining end of butter that you can’t grate.) Toss the butter into the flour mixture with your hands until well coated.
  • Drizzle 6 tablespoons of water over the mixture and fold the mixture together until it clumps together. Continue adding water a tablespoon at a time until a loose and crumble dough forms. (It should hold when squeezed.)
  • Gently knead the dough a few times in the bowl until a cohesive mass is formed. Shape into a ½-inch thick square and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Chill for 1 hour.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle. Fold the dough in thirds like a letter. Turn 90 degrees. Repeat rolling, folding, and rotating 3 more times.
  • Fold back into thirds, wrap tightly, then chill for at least 2 hours or up to 2 days, or placed in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
