5.
Gradually add the butter, one piece at a time, working each piece of butter into the dough before adding the next.
6.
Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Put into an oiled bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 1/2-2 hours until doubled in volume,
7.
Roll the dough out to a thickness of about 1cm| 1/2". Cut into rounds using a 7cm|3" cookie cutter Gather up the trimmings, knead quickly and return to the bowl. Cover the bowl and leave to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes until doubled in volume. Roll out and cut out rounds as before.
8.
