  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup dehydrated onion, or dried minced onion
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/3 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 cup whole milk plus 1 to 2 tablespoons, if needed
  • 3/4 cup softened butter, divided


  1. In a small bowl, combine the water and dehydrated onion. Let the onion soak for at least 20 minutes.
  2. In an electric mixer with a dough hook on low speed, combine the bread flour, salt, granulated sugar, and the instant yeast. Mix for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the milk and 1/4 cup of butter. Mix for 2 minutes on low speed.
  4. Add half the onions and 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk if needed. Increase the speed to medium-low and mix. Mix until the dough comes together.
  5. Dust a towel with flour and cover the bowl. Let the bowl rest for 5 minutes.
  6. On a clean and floured surface, roll out the dough to a 12-by-9-inch rectangle.
  7. Spread the butter over one half of the dough. Fold the dough in half and roll back out to a 12-by-9-inch rectangle. Fold the dough in thirds towards the center and roll back out to a 12-by-9-inch rectangle. Do not squeeze the butter out.
  8. Place the dough on a paper-lined plastic tray. Place in the refrigerator for 90 minutes.
