  1. Starting temperature: 125°F (52°C). Mix all the ingredients (except the dry pastry butter) at your mixer’s lowest speed. The dough should have under 60% hydration.

Fold using a book turn, followed by a letter turn. Leave to sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Spread out and cut. Glaze with egg wash. Leave to sit for 2 hour at 80°F (25°C). Glaze with egg wash. Bake at 430°F (220°C) in a deck oven.
