Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Have a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together first 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a medium bowl. Add butter and mix with your fingertips until evenly mixed and looks like sand. Add ice cold water and mix with your hands to get a slightly smooth dough (add 1/2-1 teaspoon additional water if required). The dough should be firm, yet smooth. 
  3. Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll each piece with the palm of hands on the kitchen counter to get a 16-inch (approximately) long rope of even thickness.  Don’t bother if it breaks, just pinch it back together and proceed.
