  1. Turn the dough so that the 9" side is towards you. Place the sticks of butter vertically and side-by-side (touching) on the center of the dough. Fold the bottom ⅓ up over the butter, then fold the top ⅓ down (think folding a letter). Press the outside edges together to seal the butter in.
  2. While the dough is chilling, cut the sticks of butter in half lengthwise. Remove the dough from the fridge onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to a 9 x 13" rectangle.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, form into a ½" thick rectangle, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
  4. Add the paddle attachment to the mixer, then pour in the salt, melted butter and 2½ cups flour. Run the mixer on low until the dough comes together (it will be shaggy), adding up to ¼ cup more flour if needed.
  5. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the yeast, sugar, and warm milk. Stir together and let sit for 5 minutes until the yeast is foamy.
