Mixing Dough - Methodology

October 30, 2010 - 10:42pm -- KyleInTexas

Greetings Bakers,

I have an old recipe that calls for handworking dough made of flour, egg, softened butter, baking powder, rum and orange flower water. The recipe says to continue kneading the dough until it comes together, but also states that it will take a long time until it feels right. The end result is a ball of dough about the size of a large man's fist that will eventually be worked into a 3 foot by 3 foot sheet of pastry about the thickness of a sheet of cardstock or cigar paper.
