  • 1.   Arrange the flour, sugar (if you want a sweet dough) salt in a salad bowl. Arrange the mixture in a fountain.
  • 2.   Put the butter in the center and knead these elements as quickly as possible by adding cold water.
  • 3.   Gather the dough into a ball even if there are some patches of unincorporated butter, without too much work the dough not to be too elastic.
  • 4.   Flatten the dough slightly and film it. Put the dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  • 5.   Then whisk the dough, then lower it on the lightly floured work surface, according to a variable thickness depending on the use.


  • I prepare several that I freeze to always have a ready to hand when the time comes and save time. They keep 2-3 months in the freezer. Divide your dough into several dough pieces and shape dough pieces in the shape of a rectangle on a regular thickness. Then wrap them in food film before putting them in the freezer. As thawing will be more homogeneous and the dough pieces will be ready to be spread.
