  4. Cover this with a cling film and chill it in the fridge overnight.
  5. The next day cut a butter paper of (25*18) cm dimension. Cut the butter paper in a such a manner that it looks like a book cover having the dimensions mentioned on both sides. Leave some extra butter paper so as to fold and seal.
  6. Take the cold, 1 cup of butter and slice it into smaller pieces. Put the pieces inside the butter paper and fold the edges to seal it.
  7. Bash and roll the butter using a rolling pin so that the butter forms a thin sheet inside the butter paper. Chill it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

  15. Trim the ends to make perfect edges using a knife.
  16. Cut the dough into equal squares.
  17. Take each square, make small cuts at each edge, tuck one end to the middle to form the flower.
  18. Whisk the egg and egg yolks and brush this on the flowers.
  19. Proof it at room temperature for 1 hour.
