With machine running, add water or milk and lemon juice and mix until dough forms ball, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Turn dough out onto unfloured surface and shape into smooth ball.

Meanwhile, combine butter and remaining flour in large bowl and mix until smooth.
Turn out onto surface.

Cover butter with plastic wrap and chill in freezer until firm, about 20 minutes.
When dough and butter are chilled to equal firmness but not frozen, transfer dough to lightly floured surface and roll into 12-inch square.
Set butter mixture in center of dough and fold sides over butter evenly, making sure ends meet in center.
Pinch ends of dough together so there are no holes.
Using rolling pin, make series of slight depressions in crisscross pattern over dough until square is flattened to 8 inches.
Roll dough into rectangle.
Fold top 1/3 toward center; fold remaining 1/3 over top, as for business letter.
This is called a single turn.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill in freezer until firm but not frozen, about 20 minutes.
Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface with open end toward you.
