It is very important that when you extend the ball, you leave a more mass in the center. So, the tips of the cross are thinner and in the center is like a lump of dough. Now, you must place the remaining butter in block form in the center of the cross. If it does not have this form, you must give it to yourself.

Now you must cover the butter with the tips of the cross, placing one over the other. You must do it so that the block is completely covered by the dough, as if it were a package. When you have it, remove the excess flour if there is one and, with the roller, take several strokes on the square to soften the butter.

Now, it's time to do the first laps. Divide it into three parts, take the lower end and take it up to a little more than half, so that the upper end can pass over it. Look at the image.

After the time, you must extend the dough again with the roller and make two more turns, that is, repeat step 6 twice. Reserve the rectangle in the fridge again for 20 more minutes and redo this process again. You must do six laps in total to get the puff pastry rolled when baked.
