Pistachio paste

  • Mix together the milk, egg yolks, eggs, sugar, honey, orange paste and the malt.
  • Add the flour, the natural liquid starter and the yeast, then start to knead.
  • Continue to knead for 6-7 minutes, then add the salt and lastly, the butter mixed with the pistachio paste.
  • Leave to rise at room temperature for 30-60 minutes until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Roll out the dough to the size of a 60 cm x 40 cm baking sheet, cover with clingfilm and chill overnight in the refrigerator.
  • The next day, take the butter out of the fridge (about 15 minutes before you want to use it in the summer and 30 minutes before in the winter), and roll out to 7-8 mm thick using a dough sheeter.
  • Incorporate the butter into the dough and make three letter folds.
  • Chill at 0°C for 20-30 minutes.
