cup butter till mixture resembles small crumbs. Combine egg and
water; add to flour mixture. Stir till combined. Turn dough out
onto lightly floured surface' knead 5 minutes. Divide in half.

Cover a large surface (table) with a floured cloth. ON the cloth
roll half of the dough into a 15 inch square. spread on 2 tbs.. of
butter. Cover; let rest 10 min. . Stretch dough starting with the
center of dough and using back of your hand slowly stretch the

through the dough. The dough will be paper thin and see through.

Spread 1/4 cup of the soften butter on the first 1/4 section of
the longest side of the rectangle shape dough.( Oh yeah, cut off
the thicker edges of the dough all around). Now add your filling
on top of the butter and using your cloth to roll up the dough,
start rolling till filling has been covered. Now spread the rest
of the dough with butter and then roll the whole thing up until
you have a tight roll. Seal the edges.
