knead for at least 7-8 minutes, and gradually incorporate the butter at room temperature cut into small pieces, let the previous pieces absorb before incorporating the following ones. When the dough comes off the walls of the planetary mixer and is therefore well strung, pour the dough on a freshly floured work surface and create a smooth dough, you will need to knead for another few minutes (5). Let the dough rise for an hour and a half by covering it with a cloth and keeping it in a warm enough place, without drafts. Once the leavening is over, roll out the dough with a rolling pin 1 cm thick, with the pastry cutter cut discs of the size you prefer
