What you’ll need
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks)
Very cold unsalted butter
2 1/2 teaspoons
1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon cream
Whisk your dry ingredients together in a bowl. Measure wet ingredients into a different bowl.
Grate your very cold butter on the large holes of a box grater
Using your hands, quickly work the butter into the flour until some bits of butter are pea-sized.
Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix, fluffing with a fork until it barely comes together in a ball
Place dough on work surface and pat into a circle. Fold it over on itself twice & press to 1” thick
Use a 2” cookie cutter to cut circles. Place on tray covered with silpat or parchment.
Brush on egg wash and (optional) sprinkle with coarse sea salt
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-18 minutes, or golden brown.
