  • Take the flour and salt and sieve them into another container. Stir in some icing sugar after adding butter and mixing it all with your fingers. Next add egg yolks, 2-3 tablespoons of water and roll it into a ball, wrap and refrigerate. Take it out after some time and roll it into a flat disc as thick as a coin.
