Instructions

The folding1. Mix the ingredients for the détrempe and form a round dough, leave to rest for 15 minutes in a cool place.

2. Make a cross with a knife in the top of the dough, tease it slightly apart.

3. Roll out one side after the other with a rolling pin so that the dough looks like a large cross. Place the folding butter at room temperature in the middle of the dough (it should have the same consistency as the dough). Fold the sides of the dough over each other to enclose the but- ter, this should form a square.

4. Turn the square over and roll it out lengthwise to form a strip.

5. Take the upper 1/3 of the strip and fold it towards the middle, then take the lower 1/3 and fold it over as well. Turn the dough 1⁄4 to the right and repeat the process, then leave to rest for 20 minutes in the fridge.
