Step 1: The preparation

Mix together flour and salt. Transfer to a work surface, form into a mound, and create a cavity in the center. Crack egg into cavity. Cut butter into chunks, distribute on top of flour, and then cut into dough using a dough scraper. Next, use hands to thoroughly incorporate ingredients into uniform dough. Press into a flat disc. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for approx. 30 min.
