For the dough, pile flour on a work surface, mix with salt and make a well in the center. Mix eggs in center of well and place butter in small pieces evenly over flour. Add 3 tablespoons of lukewarm water and chop all ingredients with a knife until crumbly and knead with hands quickly until dough is smooth and elastic. Shape into a ball and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes in plastic wrap.
