Sift flour into a medium mixing bowl, and stir in salt. Break butter into medium-sized chunks and combine them into flour and salt mixture by massaging them in with clean hands. Combine until mixture sticks together and can form a loose ball incorporating most of the flour, with some chunks of butter remaining.
Make a well in the butter and flour mixture and slowly add the cold water. Stir together until dough becomes firm, adding remaining water as needed. Form dough into a ball and cover bowl with plastic wrap, then place it in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes or as long as overnight.
