Rough Puff Pastry

Scale the flour into a large mixing bowl. Grate the butter. Combine the flour, half of the butter and mix. Add the water and salt and make a dough. Place on a lightly floured counter and knead to make sure it all comes together. Place back in bowl, cover and place along with the butter in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to rest. On a lightly floured counter, roll out the dough to a large rectangle. Spread out ¼ of the remaining butter on the middle third of the dough. Fold the top end over the butter – letter style. Spread another ¼ of the butter and fold up the bottom. Do a quarter turn and repeat with the remaining butter. Do two more turns without butter. Wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before using.
