Combine the cut butter with the sifted flour, salt, and sugar.
Do this by using either a pastry blender or a fork, cutting the butter into the flour until it is evenly distributed.

Step 4: Adding the Water.

After the butter is combined with the flour, add 1/2 a cup of cold water and mix.
Add another 1/4 a cup of cold water and continue mixing until dough begins to form and hold it's shape.
This may take another 1/4 cup of cold water depending on factors such as where you live or how much moisture is in the air.

Step 5: Kneading the Dough.

When the dough has started forming, start kneading it lightly to ensure the ingredients are fully combined.
Wrap the dough in saran and refrigerate for a half hour.

Step 6: Whip Cream.

In the meantime you can make the whip cream and filling of your choice.
To make the whip cream, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream in a small bowl and use a beater or whisk to mix it until stiff peaks form.
Store in a container and refrigerate until needed.

Is it possible to use margarine instead of butter in this recipe? I'm lactose intolerant, so I try to avoid milk-based products like the plague.
Good luck. Simple and delicious. And a very pretty i'ble.
