Measure all ingredients of Ingredient 1) into a measuring cup or a container, combine then let stand for 10 minutes (Picture 1, left). Stir in 1 tbsp oil, mix well then pour this yeast mixture into the flour bowl. Knead a few times to make a soft dough (Picture 2), don’t over knead. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume (Picture 3).

2: While waiting for the dough to rise, cut the butter into thin slices and set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.

3: After the dough has risen, chill the dough in a fridge for 20 minutes. Take out the dough and shape into a log on a floured surface. Press down and roll out into a 15×40 cm rectangle (Picture 4).

4: Lay butter slices on top to cover 2/3 of the dough, leaving an unbuttered border about ¼ inch wide. Fold the unbuttered 1/3 toward the center (Picture 5), then fold the opposite side to make a 3-layered dough (Picture 6). Turn 90 degrees and roll out into a 30×60 cm rectangle (Picture 7). Fold into thirds again (Pictures 8). Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for 15 minutes.
