  3. Add both the milk mixture and the flour mixture together and gently combine.
  4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work top and press together to form a square. Wrap in cling film and put in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Once cooled, with a rolling pin roll the dough into a rectangle shape, fold it gently and roll it out with the rolling pin again. Repeat until the dough is soft. Put in the refrigerator for two hours.
