1. Combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a bowl. Mix well.

3. Add the cold milk little by little and mix until a dough forms.
4. Place the dough on a floured work surface and knead briefly until it comes together.
5. Roll out the dough into a rectangle and fold it into thirds like a letter.
6. Repeat the rolling and folding process two more times.
7. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
8. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
