2. While pulsing, gradually add the butter until the mixture becomes crumbly.
3. While pulsing, add the vanilla extract and gradually add the milk until the mixture comes together to a ball of dough. If your mixture hasn’t come together, just try adding another tablespoon of milk. You should get a soft and shiney dough.

6. Carefully fold the top right of the circle towards the center, then fold the left side towards the center, overlapping the upper part of the right side, and finally, fold the bottom part towards the center, creating a triangle. Pinch dough at the edges of the triangle.
