Step by step method
Combine flour, salt, baking powder into a bowl.
Blend butter into the flour with hands or mixer to arrive at a crumbly texture.
Gradually add water to the mixture as you knead or mix the dough. You may not need all the water if the dough is too wet be sure to sprinkle flour until it reaches the desired consistency.
Do not over mix or knead. The dough should have a smooth consistency.
Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for 15 mins.
