2 1/2c all-purpose flour
1 tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2c whole milk
1 stick of butter, cut into cubes (chilled)
1 egg for egg wash (This is the very last step)
Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
Add cubed butter and mix with a spoon. It will be sticky. Make sure that everything is combined really well. Add flour and mix well with hands.
Put dough on a floured surface and knead until batter is fully incorporated into the flour.
Place in a bowl and sit in freezer for 15 minutes.
If for some reason you forget it in there (no judgement here) just let it thaw enough to push your finger in it.
Remove from freezer and add milk.
Use spoon to work the milk into the dough. But, your life will be much easier if you just use your hands. If mixture gets too dry, just add a tbs of water.
Divide dough into two and flatten like a disk.
Cover with plastic wrap or parchment paper and sit in the fridge while you’re working on the filling.
