The only suggestion is to prepare it in the mixer, because the presence of the butter makes the dough unwieldy by hand.

Hi Ada,
sorry to bother you and if you would be kind enough to reply to certain questions: which flour you used? a particular 00 or from supermarket; the dough after fifteen minutes of rest is workable with the rolling pin? When you talk about low-speed planetary what number you are referring to (I have a kenwood). Sincerely following the recipe very faithfully I had to go beyond the twenty minutes you write about and yet didn't want to learn incordarsi I had to add some’ flour and make a lot of effort with the slap & fold in order to obtain a workable mass…. I still don't know what will come out because I write while I await the hour of rest. Thanks

Hello! Then, I have faithfully followed the recipe by Montersino, I've done this several times and I've reported identical. I've never had any problems except once I had the kitchen too hot and the dough is moist and remained incordava. I normally use 00 buy in Mills or at most the Garofalo. Also I have Kenwood and use the 3 as speed. If not can you hold little stretches in the refrigerator. It's not that you got too hot in the kitchen and the butter melts???

Hi Adrian, Thanks but I'm not Montersino, I only made one of his recipes! But I'm sure the master, I know, would appreciate very much your compliments. ADA

Sorry but the milk powder is essential?

No, I put the original recipe and you can avoid. For more softness but also works without
